How did you find out what the previous record was?

I knew from an old listserv post, but John Sterling's website had all the county big day records on it. The only problem is it seemed to go down in the past month, not sure if he's updating it or decided to stop paying for the space.

Wow, awesome list! Please kind sir, could you send one Blue Grosbeak my way? Thanks 😁

Sure thing, I currently have female/immature, adult males, and immature males molting in to adult plumage, what would you like?

I joined up with a few other birders from the northeast and saw 66 species at the Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve this morning. The Wilson's Warblers were still out in full swing, and various flycatchers were enjoying their namesake. One lifer (Franklin's Gull) and one additional FOY (Warbling Vireo).

Who would one just one? I think he’d want all of them!

Any trip with a lifer is a great day!  Got my 20th lifer of the year with a Coopers Hawk!  It was one of those things that happen often on my trips.  I'm shooting blind into some bad lighting conditions in the distance and have no idea what I'm looking at until I get home.  I should have been more diligent and taken more bursts with different lighting adjustments, but the pic came out OK.  

Was a pretty normal day except for the lifer.  The one Nanday Parakeet I heard screeching could have been nice enough to perch on a wire for me but didn't feel like being accommodating.

Not guaranteeing the purchase :), but please send me a link.  So far, I've got my sunglasses and my camera hinging from my neck, and whenever I upgrade to a DSLR and long lens, the load will be heavier, so I have considerations.

If you put the DSLR around your neck, you can put the binoculars around you shoulder and let them hang down on your side. That’s exactly what I do. 
Ill send you that lick in a personal message.

Incredible day on the family property this morning, with huge numbers of migrating warblers being the highlight. At least 23 Warbler species, don't think I've ever breached 20 on one list before. Yeah I had 100 species in my sights, but sadly missed some weird expected birds and didn't get any raptors. Ended the day with 95 sp, (Possibly higher, pending review of several warbler flight photos) so I'm satisfied though (And exhausted 😁) Might have some photos up in a few days.

Was a good day but didn't get a lot of high-quality photos.  The Muscovy duckling population in the area is dwindling, but that's how nature works.  A woman on the path told me she saw a RSH take one the other day.  The Boat-tailed Grackles were hiding, as I only heard two.  It was good to see an Egyptian Goose, as they had disappeared for a while.  I have enough great pics of the species and didn't have the energy or care to find where this one disappeared to after I spotted it.  Our state bird was out is full-force today, as this is the highest number of Northern Mockingbirds I've reported on a checklist:
