😱

It would kill me if I saw something like this in my county. "Merlin said so, so it must be true" and reporting rare or uncommon birds with 0 comments are my biggest pet peeves.

Not just rare birds, but birds from other continents that have never been seen in the country!

Would LEBI be a lifer?

No.  If it were, I would have looked for the nest, as another birder told me where it was, but I was on my way out, and it wasn't important enough.  I got my lifer with a photo on 05/14/2022.  Since then, I've had 18 additional observations, but only uploaded one additional photo in addition to one audio clip.  I'm reasonably certain that all, or almost all (maybe one or 2 other visuals, but not more) of the rest of the observations were from audio only.

Eight Hermit Warblers! I don't think I've ever had that many during migration. 

Thanks! It’s my high count too-it seems like just now they’re starting to come through the coast in good numbers, as is the case with other species.

Mostly what one would expect here at this time of day, given the short distance covered and the short amount of time spent on the trail, with two exceptions:

1 - Very rare to spend any amount of time anywhere on the refuge and not hear a Red-shouldered Hawk.

2 - I was pleasantly surprised to have heard a Lesser Nighthawk, and now, I know 
      where to look for them coming out of the woods.

I went to work for an old friend who fell on his back a couple of days ago, and can't do much. I didn't think I was going to be able to bird, but I skipped lunch and went birding. Of course I didn't bring any of my camera gear. I missed a ton of photos, and saw 3 rare BWHA! It was still nice to get out.

Really sweet list!! I thought I would give this link again, as it seems like you use breeding codes for every single species, which I don’t think should be happening. Just read the descriptions of the codes.

Alright, thanks.
