    Nope. I have not seen this bird, either.

  4. Six new checklists today with a lot of new specialties:

    First, the ones that tripped the Rare Bird Alert:

    • Lesser Black-backed Gull (two separate sightings)
    • Pacific Loon
    • Mexican Duck
    • African Collared-Dove

    And a few other goodies:

    • All three North American mergansers
    • White-winged Dove
    • Common Loon
    • Horned Grebe

    I've appended the trip report I linked a few days ago to contain all the lists from this week of birding with my father (totaling 113 species):

    Use the "checklists" tab to see the six from today.

    looking for a Cedar waxwing lifer that every other birder in the county seems to be finding, but the birdΒ still eludes me

    I feel that way about the LeConte's Thrasher over here. There's a resident one near Corn Creek, and it seems every local birder has seen it but me.

    I have seen but not photographed this bird.

  9. Are you going to be stopping in Las Vegas? I could give you some pointers for the area if you're interested.

    For the Tucson area, the Patagonia loop is essential. Be sure to hit Madera Canyon, Patagonia Lake State Park, and the Paton Center for Hummingbirds. Sections of the de Anza trail may be worthwhile as well, possibly starting from Ron Morriss Park in Tubac. If time permits, check out Las Cienegas NCA. It'll be a long day, so start early!

    Visit Sweetwater Wetlands and either side of Saguaro National Park as well, but not in the same day as Patagonia.

  10. Regarding @Charlie Spencer's question, this is only my third year of serious birding, so that's all the data I have.

    In 2021, I found 102 species in January without leaving Clark County, out of 210 birds in the county (49% in Jan) and 275 across the US (37% in Jan) in the year.

    In 2022, I found 166 species in January, out of 368 in the year, so I found 45% of them in January. For just Clark County, I found 108 in January, out of 227 in the year, so I found 48% of them in January.

    So far in 2023, I'm at 94 and have only had three days of actual birding without leaving the county.

    It's safe to say Clark County has great winter birding. πŸ™‚
