I enjoyed birding with you and Sara a few months ago. I went back to Valle Vista the other day and photographed a Bald Eagle. On a close up shot of the face I noticed a freckle on the iris of the right eye! Is this some kind of fashion statement among raptors? Next time I see you I’ll show you the picture.

Really wonderful photos. Too often bird pics are only of the bird. I like seeing these that show what they're up to. I was lucky enough to have a high school bio teacher turn me on to birding, well, bird watching, as it was called back in the early 1970s. You guys should do a book. Oh, and could you get a pic of the weird picnic table? Thanks again, Josh (and Sara!).

Of course you've read Jonathan Livingston (Sea)gull.

Of course! As well as seen Chekhov's "The Gull."

So good! Percentage of times reading "But Not Enough About Me" put a smile on my face and made me laugh, 100%. That's not an easy thing nowadays, and it is a phenomenal plus amongst many other emotions and informations we get from this endeavor. Thank you Josh!

Great photos and commentary! I've been watching peregrine falcons from hatching to fledging for the last couple of years, via the Cal Falcons Nest Cam on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7nvCVS2TRRk). But that doesn't compare to seeing that process in person through your eyes, or "bins".
