My Birds

3 notes

If I told you I saw a pair of White-faced Ibises and a pair of Western Kingbirds within 10 miles of each other, which state would you say I’m in?  What if within 30 miles I also saw Upland Sandpiper, Snowy Egret, and Lark Sparrow; and I heard about 15 Bell’s Vireos? What if I had a chance to see a Western Grebe and possibly a Clark’s Grebe but decided not to look because there was no way they would be close enough?  Whatever state you answered would be wrong.

I had a big day today…huge numbers of Alder Flycatchers, Yellow-billed Cuckoos, and Mourning Warblers. Plus two Black-billed Cuckoos, two Connecticut Warblers, an Olive-sided Flycatcher, and my first ever Blue Grosbeaks. All at a local park.

The Alders especially were crazy. I got flagged for a high count on ebird at #4 and kept going all the way to 12 Alders. Plus 3 silent flycatchers that were probably Alders and a couple more that could have been Alders. I only had 2 Alders in my life before this morning.
