Just did. 

 

Hmm, your waterthrush looks kinda like a Louisiana... 

Maybe I'm wrong.

Maybe....Louisiana would be a lot of a bigger find at the location. I just went with Northern based on the range. It didn't vocalize. Anyone else have an opinion?

I dunno, maybe I'm just seeing Louies in everybody's photos just because I wanna find one so bad myself! 😂

We went up the mountain for the first time this year. Oddly, we didn't see a single jay or nutcracker. We also quickly visited Corn Creek to check for a rare Ovenbird, but we didn't see it. Two new lifers (but only one photographed) and five FOYs:

  • Virginia's Warbler (lifer)
  • Bushtit (FOY)
  • Cassin's Finch (FOY)
  • Cordilleran Flycatcher (lifer, photographed, audio proof of ID)
  • Broad-tailed Hummingbird (FOY)

I compiled the lists into a trip report: https://ebird.org/tripreport/59140

There are a lot of audio recordings, but they're all still processing as of this post.

5 lists compiled together: https://ebird.org/tripreport/60608

We went on a day trip up to another oasis called Pahranagat National Wildlife Refuge and then to another refuge in Overton, NV. The former is in Lincoln County, so those birds cannot count for my Clark County list. I think I'll need to break it down a bit here. The turkey in particular was quite aggressive and may have had a nest.

2 lifers (and those were the only FOY):

  • Brown-crested Flycatcher
  • MacGillivray's Flycatcher (not photographed)

1 new for Clark County:

  • Wild Turkey

4 new for Nevada: the three above, plus

  • American Crow

36 new for Lincoln County (I'm not going to clutter this post up, so I'll abbreviate to banding codes):

  • CANG, GAQU, CLGR, MODO, WTSW, SPSA, RBGU, CAGU, BCNH, LBWO, DUFL, BCFL, AMCR, CORA, BEWR, CEDW, YBCH, RWBL, LUWA, MGWA, YEWA, YRWA, WIWA, WETA, REDH, EAGR, VIRA, TUVU, RTHA, OSFL, WEWP, ATFL, WEKI, MAWR, YHBL, COYE

https://ebird.org/checklist/S111899512 Great day with the drive reopening*

 

 

(*Except I think I broke the 300mm lens on the camera so my photography days may be over 😟 so maybe horrible day)

 

Please drop a rate on my possibly last photos for a while.

 

maybe @Seanbirds can get an idea of the wildlife drive sightings (It just opened today) This is some stuff we could try to find when you come.

The tropical depression kept me indoors until the afternoon.  I was wondering whether the avian character of the neighborhood would be different after the storm, and it was.  I've only seen a solitary Wood Stork here once, and today I saw four.  I've also never seen so many limpkins in one place, and this was my first sighting of a baby, although I couldn't get a picture.  

Also, the sheer number of Eurasian Collared-Doves was more than I've ever seen in one place.  I have seen this many European Starlings at once, but not in a long time.

A great day!

Another good day.

I was getting tired of seeing the same species in the area every day and was therefore very excited to see the RSH perched on the wire.  I ran over to get a photo op.

I also saw Rock Pigeons with different colorings and markings (white nose patch) than I'd seen before.
