These Baja Birders having fun with Baja Birds.

How can we not?  Even though we have to look a little closer and search a little further thanks to Hurricane Odile, there are many birds around the East Cape area.  Like this Gray Thrasher, a Baja endemic.  Being a bit of a drab colored bird, I’m reminded every time I listen to one singing from it’s lonely perch that true beauty may not be in the eye of the beholder.

Some of my friends say the Gila Woodpecker  annoys them because “they are such noisy birds”.   Baja just wouldn’t be the same to me without this clown-bird yipping and bobbing it’s head up and down around the patio.  Watch this bird watch you!  It seems to first look through one eye at you only to turn it’s head to stare at you from the other like to make sure what it is seeing is really there or “what the heck is that”.

I have to admit, sometimes it is hard for my darling Debbie to pry me off this rock (our casa) to go and do anything.  I love making coffee in the A.M. and sitting with my sweetheart, watching the sun rise and the White-winged Doves swooping by our heads flocking to the feeders.

I always keep the hummer-feeders clean in respect for the health of these magnificent birds.  I suspect this female Costa’s Hummingbird is doing her best to keep her babies satisfied.

While the male looks on protecting their place at the Palo-de-Arco blossoms.

Here’s a hummingbird feeder I clumsily made from a tequila bottle someone donated.  Needs a little fine-tuning but the concept works.  My Baja Hummer-feeder.


I’m gonna finish this blog with a few random photos from yesterday.  By-the-way, will you pretty-please with sugar on it “LIKE” this post at the bottom of the page? Happy Birding!

    Sheila, there was word of a Golden Eagle being spotted in the Cabo Pulmo area last year. I tried to find but no success so if you see one this year, please let me know. Chris

    BillJane, thanks for visiting. Just click on the rectangular box that says “Like” underneath the icons. Should work???

  5. BillJane says:

    We like but couldn’t find the like link except for facebook & it never let us like. The gray thrasher photo is great as well as all of the ones on this blog.

    So sorry, I tried to fix it but without luck. The FaceBook icon is just to post it on your FB page. However, underneath the row of icons, there is a “like” with a check mark. That is where you “like” it. Thanks so much for following!

    Geez, me too. Clicking on FB took me to an invalid link.
    But I loved the post.

    I love your photos! I have two hummingbird feeders here in LaPaz. When I refill them I always stand in the sun and hold them at arm’s length for a few minutes. Almost every time the Costa males come and treat me to a close up look at their brilliant feathers.
