Greetings from the US

You might feel that you've stumbled upon the wrong blog! But your's truly is in the US on holiday, and another of my interests is aircraft. I have visited the Oshkosh Airshow in Wisconsin, probably the largest in the World. Certainly for numbers of visiting aircraft, reported to be 14,000, and that isn't a misprint. The highlight for many, was the appearance of the F-22 Raptor (pictured), only the 2nd public display.
Despite temperatures in the near 40s C. and humidity around 80%+, I've still managed a fair bit of birding. So, if you're interested, I suggest you visit Illinois Birds (there's a link at right).
Highlight so far has probably been the Upland Sandpiper, but the rails have been a close second.
Hope to publish more Tasmanian birds soon, but using an
unfamiliar computer has its drawbacks!
