Your checklist of the day!

Recommended Posts

No Yellow-rumped Warblers on either checklist.  Looks like they are leaving town.  I recently spoke with a local birder who noticed fewer around these days as well.

Not much to comment on for the first one.  Normal stuff for the area.  I should be seeing more species this time of day though.  The highlight was being able to capture good audio of a Red-bellied Woodpecker call.  I've uploaded RBWO audio before, but never this call:

I got the Red-crowned Parrot lifer I was after!  I'd never been here, so I showed up earlier than the anticipated flyover, walked around the neighborhood, and ended up with a decent checklist with some good photos:

I took it slow today.  I did get a surprisingly good number of species on the last checklist though:

I wasn't expecting much here this time of day - https://ebird.org/checklist/S131310143

I'm may add one species to this list if I can get a species determined from some awful photos, but the checklist is otherwise complete:

It takes some luck for me to get a 20-species list in the backyard.  This time I was helped by a couple of flyovers (Bald Eagle and two Red-Taileds) and some birds that are not uncommon but don't pass through the yard very often (Eastern Phoebe, American Robin).  I wouldn't have needed as many of those lucky birds if some of the regulars had shown up (Carolina Wren, Blue Jay, Red-winged, maybe a flyover Osprey).

Not much going on here.  Somebody recently reported a few Common Mynas in a local Walmart parking lot, so I drove down in a failed attempt to get the lifer. -  https://ebird.org/checklist/S131371127


The main list.  It's an OK checklist.  I was mainly here to get a Blue-winged Warbler lifer, but the bird was nowhere to be found.   - https://ebird.org/checklist/S131405754

My original plan was to stay only 30 minutes and either get a Blue-winged Warbler lifer or not.  The bird continues to elude me, but the refuge is so precious that I couldn't help to stick around until it was too dark to take pictures.  I looked up last light for the area today, and I technically had one-minute left.

Decent checklist for the area.  I could have observed more species, but I was only concentrating on areas where I thought I'd have the best chance to spot the BWWA that I suspect has left town.
