You can't take a photo of this, it's already gone.

This week I have been mostly... sleepy

I have been mostly playing with my new Canon 5D Mk II

I'm currently reading... White Gold Wielder, Stephen Donaldson

I am mostly listening to... Muse

I am currently... Writing a paper

When I should be... Working harder

I am most looking forward to... The Muse concert on Thursday :)

This weekend I am... probably cooking an Easter dinner for everyone.

The website for my lab

My brothers website

An amazingly good program that can recover lost/deleted photos

I originally thought this was a Whiskey Jack, but it's beak seems too long. Anyone know what it is?

Hi RAB! I was showing EJ this morning and since he's the master bird watcher in the lab, he actually solved your mistery! These are young Nutcrackers (and not uglu looking Youngen Whisky Jacks which was my guess...). Also in the Jay family though, so cousins!

Yeah, clark's nutcracker. The beak is too big for a whiskey jack (Canada Jay, Gray Jay). There are actually 3 subspecies of the whiskey jack, only different by coloration. Boreal (canadensis), southern rockies ( capitalis)and northwest(obscurus).
