  1. Today, we went (second time for me) to Santee State Park and the Cuddo unit of Santee NWR. Unlike the time before with my father, the area around the visitor center of the state park was fairly quiet. We heard an FOY Prairie Warbler singing at the refuge and watched several species of gulls chase an Osprey for its lunch.

    I have a few comments to add that have come to mind:

    • Certain counts make it clear that the migration is in full swing. I had no Great Crested Flycatchers until April 3, and today I had 16 of them. The Summer Tanagers and Orchard Orioles have also started singing.
    • From my totals, it may appear I've seen more Black Vultures than Turkey, but I haven't reported the hundreds of TUVUs I've seen while driving between destinations.
    • Blue Jays, Tufted Titmice, and White-eyed Vireos are tricky when it comes to birding by sound with their surprising range of vocalizations.

    Tomorrow, I need to help my mother with some stuff, and I'm likely going to the bird walk at Phinizy on Saturday.

  3. My mother had some stuff to do with my aunt, and she didn't have much interest in going to Columbia, so I headed up there for two stops. First, I went to the Congaree Creek segment of the Timmerman Trail and saw a lifer Swainson's Warbler (with audio and bad photo) and FOY Wood Thrush. Then I went to Gibson Pond Park (which I see @Charlie Spencer visits regularly) in search of a Black-throated Blue Warbler, but instead I heard another Swainson's Warbler and photographed another lifer: a Worm-eating Warbler!

  5. We went to Caw Caw Interpretive Center (again the second time for me), and the temperatures were very nice. I got two FOYs, one of which triggered the rare bird alert (Hairy Woodpecker). I also snagged a poor photo of that dang kite. After lunch, we went to Wannamaker County Park to visit with family, and I walked the nature trails.

  7. Probably a Wilson's Snipe in the desert. It wasn't terribly far from water, but they normally stick to the shore.

    Maybe the Lesser Yellowlegs walking on pavement

    I photographed a Long-billed Curlew walking on the sidewalk in Huntington Beach, California.

    Not a movie, but I recently got a Nintendo Switch and am playing Zelda:Breath of the Wild.  There are a ton of fairly accurately placed NA bird calls in there.  Chickadees during the day, Whip-poor-wills at night.  I can also take photos of "Lifer" birds in there that I think are fictional (haven't looked it up).🀣  

    The fact that you have to photograph all the wildlife for a task in that game immediately set off that mindset in me.

    List-assisted. I have not seen this bird.

  11. We visited Horne Wetlands at Edisto Memorial Gardens in Orangeburg and saw an FOY Black-and-white Warbler. Grackles, robins, wrens, and vireos were very active.

    Later in the day, that Swallow-tailed Kite teased me again.
