  1. This afternoon I went over my Western Palearctic (Europe and Israel) life list very carefully, and noticed that 7 species had been split since I compiled that list decades ago, so I picked up even more armchair lifers. 2 species were intra-European splits according to the Dutch Birding document I was consulting, both of them wagtails. The other 5 were e.g. Wilson's Snipe being split off from the Eurasian Common Snipe. So that's 8 lifers in the past month -- these 5, the 2 from my August activity, and the actual lifer American Flamingos a few days ago.

  4. One of the Pennsylvania flamingos was apparently attacked by a snapping turtle, and sent to a rehabber this morning. The other bird is still at that pond.
  5. Yellow-bellied Flycatcher is not currently reviewable in DC on that date (Sep. 13), so the YBFL photos in that checklist were not seen by an eBird reviewer.

  15. Oh, and somewhere along the Indiana-Kentucky border there is another flamingo eta I pulled this info from a public ABA rare Facebook page β€œThe flamingo is currently on the KY shore of the Ohio River opposite Switzerland Co, IN and can likely be viewed from IN 156 roadside about two miles south of Patriot. It is along an open section of shore with a vertical dirt bank behind it.”
  16. 2 flamingos in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. Not my checklist: https://ebird.org/checklist/S149214153. Less than 100 miles from my house, so, maybe I'll go look for them tomorrow? eta: This would be the 6th state first this year, after Mottled Duck, Ferruginous Hawk, Limpkin, Broad-billed Hummingbird, and Audubon’s Shearwater
  17. ABA roundup of flamingos https://www.aba.org/hurricane-idalia-report-2023/
  18. Indeed. That said, I would not call that a bluebird either in Alaska or in Maryland.

  22. 13 American Flamingos are now in Dare County, NC, at Pea Island NWR. There had been 11, I believe. The Gray Gull showed up today after not being eBirded yesterday, in Walton County, Florida. It's near a restaurant called Stinky's Fish Camp. I would love to see the gull and then eat at a place called Stinky's.
