What do you have against Swinhoe's White-eyes?

It was mostly a joke…every time I see one I think it’s something else! But, they’re non native and are absolutely everywhere at the migrant traps here.

Good number of species for the limited distance covered.  My first time seeing a Snail Kite anywhere on the refuge.  It is always exciting to see our National Bird.  It was a hotspot lifer for me, as well as only my second sighting of a BAEA anywhere on the Refuge:

Normal stuff for this place at this time of day:

Nice! Snail Kites are so cool!

This place has more to offer, but I was there in the middle of a hot day.  Given the circumstances, I saw a good number of species.  I had a great experience learning a Northern Mockingbird alarm call.  I didn't report the NOMO until I actually saw the bird, as I thought a squirrel alarm call was faking out Merlin.  I was able to capture a lot of audio to share.  I'm still working out issues with my microphone setup, so the longer clips suffer from some peaking and wind noise, but the 27-second one is mostly clean.  See the species notes for the full story:

Amazing day in the Sierra Nevadas. Lots of birds, especially woodpeckers. I don't know of many places in the mountains I've had thirty-one woodpeckers of seven species on one list before. Got good looks at most everything on the checklist as well, which doesn't always happen. Having good looks at Mountain Quail was super fun as well!

I took an Audubon Everglades field trip this morning.  I was hoping for a lifer but not expecting any since it was June.  Nice number of species for the time of year.  

I would have normally only shared a few photos with the batch that came out, but the AE leader likes illustrated checklists, so I uploaded more.
