  1. Ty - I changed my observation from swallow.sp to falcon sp. I took a while to sink it, but no way a swallow is going to fly as fast as that bird was hauling ass.
  2. Barn Swallow fits the area more, and Cave would get marked as rare, but I don't see a forked tail. To add to any argument that this isn't a swallow, the bird was travelling very fast, flying straight. I haven't seen a swallow do this in the past: Taken this morning in Boynton Beach, Florida.
  3. I took a day off from chasing lifers and went to visit the local American Crows. Not too much else to say about this checklist. It was otherwise slow, but this is normal for the spot. https://ebird.org/checklist/S150689657
  4. American Crows at a known county location: https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/609225550

  7. I usually share my best photo first, and checklists after any audio or lifers, but I'm still sorting through my pics, and am waiting for a checklist to get shared to me. I'll get those out in a day or so, but for now: I got three lifers today: 1 - Yellow-throated Vireo: https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/609180577 2 - Veery: https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/609179817 For a better ID shot, look at my friend's photo: https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/609178207 3 - Swainson's Thrush: https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/609177674
  8. Great checklist, as I got the Chestnut-sided Warbler lifer I was after. I also got a FOY Tennessee Warbler. Good number of species for the Boardwalk as well: https://ebird.org/checklist/S150476282 I started a separate checklist for the other areas of the refuge I covered. An OK number of species for the distance travelled, but the real treat was all of the Bobolinks. I saw one report from May of five individuals at the refuge, and another report from last year had an observation of one individual, so this was tremendous! https://ebird.org/checklist/S150491662
  9. Alder Flycatcher again. This one was self-found, and most-likely not the same bird I've heard and seen before, as it was nearly a mile away from where the known individual can be found: https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/609139308
  10. Chestnut-sided Warbler: https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/609139336
  11. Alder Flycatcher: https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/609139308
  12. American Redstart: https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/609141411
  13. Color patterns, wing and tail shape are evident though, so maybe this one is identifiable. Taken this morning in Boynton Beach, Florida:
  14. Same character as yesterday. I little disappointed at not haven gotten any lifers, but this isn't the best time to be walking around the refuge. https://ebird.org/checklist/S150431711
  15. The Common Grackles were mobbing the boardwalk again: https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/609110298
  16. Downy Woodpecker: https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/609110267
  17. Already lightened, but yet, I should have lightened it even more.
  18. Lightened a ton. This is not too important now, but here is the original - cropped, but not otherwise edited:
  19. I had forgotten about this pic which is better: https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/609084398
  20. I ran down to the boardwalk, as folks had incredible checklists there this morning, reporting three potential lifers, a Canada Warbler, a Swainson's Thrush, and a Veery. I was unable to find any of those birds, but nonetheless, had a good checklist on the boardwalk and surrounding area: https://ebird.org/checklist/S150370787
  21. Common Grackles: https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/609082166
  22. Nanday Parakeets: https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/609082151
  23. Still chasing the Kentucky Warbler but haven't found it yet. Decent checklist, considering the rain and the limited area covered: https://ebird.org/checklist/S150296861
  24. Red-eyed Vireo: https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/609035107
