Florida photo lifer. I have seen and photographed Peregrine Falcons in Colorado but until yesterday I had only seen them in Florida and then only a couple. It is nice to have photo in Florida now.

Normally the shore behind the falcon would be covered in birds. Gee I wonder why there were none yesterday?😁

I went to Arizona for a week around Thanksgiving -- and my first birding excursion outside of Southern California.  I went to 6 birding hotspots, but 2 of them were a bust.  I saw a lot of birds at 4 of the locations -- 2 southeast of Phoenix and 2 in Prescott.  I got 11 lifers.  Was hoping for a few more (especially a Cactus Wren), but I'm happy with what I got:

Abert's Towhee
Black Vulture
Canvasback
Common Gallinule
Curve-billed Thrasher
Gambel's Quail
Gila Woodpecker
Greater Roadrunner
Northern Harrier
Tundra Swan
Verdin

Nice? But, the topic for lifers is this: 

This topic is only for birds you’ve seen, but not photographic.

Only my second Blue-headed Vireo.  The first was a couple of years ago, later in early spring, less than a tenth of a mile away.  Not bad for having to aim up and out of the passenger side from the driver's side of the 'car blind'.

Eurasian Wigeon-I saw one of these on two separate occasions while living in Colorado but after looking for a photo of one not long ago I couldn't find one. I don't recall if I didn't get one or if perhaps it got deleted as a very poor photo. Any way I had not shared one with ebird as of this sighting so photo lifer it is. Too far away for a great photo but it isn't horrible either.

Henslow's Sparrow.  This one was quite a challenge, but 2 trips and 8 hours later, I finally managed a decent picture of what has to be one of the more beautiful sparrows I've identified so far.
