Wait, 2000??? How? Probably the most I've gotten at one go is 70.

They roost in the valley right next to the town. Every morning Erlanger sunrise and every evening around sunset, the giant flock flies over. During the day, they disperse to all the different areas in the town. For example, a neighborhood walk in the middle of the day gets about 150ish crows. However, the giant counts that you’ll sometimes see on my checklists are all flyovers at sunrise and sunset. In fact, there’s more than 2000, it’s just that most of them are blocked by the hills. There’s probably closer to 4000, just how would I know? 
 

 

 

At different hotspot during the day in my area, you can get up to 200, still everywhere though. 

Here is today’s list. https://ebird.org/checklist/S102536468
 

Just a quick walk around the neighborhood. How many lifers would you guys get from this?

What the heck dude? Less than an hour in your neighborhood gets you 40 species?!?? 😯 I’d get no less than 15 lifers from that list! 

I'd get 8.

I’m lucky. We live in a busy town, but there’s a bunch of trails in good habitat.

Nice! Sounds like some fun birding. Pretty much just residential streets around here.

I don’t think I worded that right. It’s a large residential town with streets with a few trees, but there are trails surrounding the town that have a bunch of birds. I count the one right next to my neighborhood for my neighborhood lists. There’s also a few drainage ponds about two miles from my house, so I often walk down there. 
Here’s that hotspot.

Residential neighborhoods can be fun to bird. I've found some of my best rarities by walking good looking streets in residential areas.

THIS. I love birding in my town. I’ve found a bunch of cool stuff, but no rarities.

Did @HamRHead go with you? 

The Barn was a lifer, sort of. I remember seeing a Barn in a barn when I was young, but couldn't remember enough specifics to add it to my life list. Cool bird, although I don't think they are as attractive as some other owls.

Nice!!! Banding? I WANT. Searched hundreds of pines of various species for one of these guys the other day but no luck.

Oh it's not my picture 😂 I was just responding to this:

I got there 30 minutes after him, so never ran into him. It's been a long time since I've birded with him, we should fix that soon. Maybe when @Liam shows his face here in Georgia again.

Just so y'all know, when this happens, I'm inviting myself along.  Yes, it's very rude of me, but isn't that what you've come to expect by now?
