The prize, of course, is the snowy owl. We went up to Dead Creek looking for one on February 22, and Tim found it! The scope we set up attracted lots of other birders. I may never see another. It was a great day.

Glad you saw the snowy owl. If I wrote a BY: Quarterly report, I’d have about four birds on it. Sigh. Though they would include kereru and tui. (Sparrow, seagull, and something little that comes to the house that I can’t identify.)

By the way, sparrows and seagulls kind of kill me. There are so many species, and I find it harder to get motivated to identify the ones I don’t know. Ah, to see a kereru and tui! (In fact, I will look up kereru now!)

Reporting back: A pigeon! A pretty one. Google’s first reports are that maybe those reports that this protected species was served to Will and Kate are incorrect…

Yes (replying to your last message). Those reports are ridiculous. They come out of British media though, so … Anyway, I think you saw this …http://aseparatelife.wordpress.com/2014/01/26/kereru-vist-again/
