    Today we were successful in finding a melodious laughing thrush in Kalopa Park, Hawaii Island. The forest was too thick for photos, but we got a great audio recording. He was belting it out! How can I share the audio file?

      Mike and Donna Wagner That is very interesting!  We're in central California and I think our hummers stay here all year.  At least they're all still here now.

      xctraveler The current administration does not give a @#$@ about birds, or anything that is not Right Wing. Maybe we should show them that birds have right wings as well as left they would have a change ..oh I'm dreaming. THE WALL IS WHAT IS IMPORTANT just ask.
