Sunday Shots 03/05/23: Looking Back at Some Glory Days
This weekend was a complete bust for me. I’m actually surprised that this doesn’t happen more often. I checked some of the lakes in southern Orange County on Saturday and didn’t get anything to speak of. I was feeling wiped out from the work week, so I called it quits early.
Then, on Sunday Linda Scrima, Maria Loukeris, and I headed up to Williamstown Massachusetts, where we joined Rob Stone to try for the Bohemian Waxwings that have been reported there recently. Suffice to say we didn’t even see a single Cedar Waxwing. It was a pretty grim morning of birding, and after a delicious lunch (which took the edge off a little bit), we headed back to OC.
With all the time spent in the car, we of course got to telling stories and reliving some of the glory days in the past decade or so that we’ve spent birding in the area. I figured since I came up empty this weekend, I would take the opportunity to look back at some old posts and relive some of the good old days – this edition will focus on raptors:

“The bird(s) weren’t there, but I got to spend time with a nice group of birders”.
^ Truth. I enjoyed talking about the past “glory days” of birding. Here’s to many more.
Nothing better than good people to take the sting out of no birds, no doubt about it. And yes, here’s to many more. Let’s start tomorrow, lol. Matt
It stinks when you drive far and return empty handed… That’s what happened to me a few weeks ago when I went for the Tufted Duck and common gull. but I’m happy you posted these photos. All great birds, fantastic photos and worthy of many reminiscing conversations .
It does stink, Jodi; sorry to hear about your recent dip. I try not to let a Sunday go by without posting, so this worked out pretty well for me. Thanks for checking in. Matt
