We have been out to CA once on vacation for a couple of weeks and I was able to see a lot of new birds, though I had to keep my wife interested in the trip as well. I have been in and out a couple of times for work, but no time to do any birding. We have been to UT a few times now and have had an opportunity to see some western birds on those trips. We live just north of Tampa. Because we are coming out with another couple, I will definitely have to sneak out early to get in a little birding. I already have a wish list made out. I already have some of these, but would love to get a better picture if possible. Some of these are not in the SD area. It is below.
Bird Wish List
Long-billed Curlew (SD River Mudflats)
Black Turnstone (Point La Jolla)
Wanderling Tattler (Point La Jolla)
Northern Saw-whet Owl
