Both quality lists! Fishy lads and Mississippi Kites though...

 

Yeah I like the one from Grandma's because she actually has a good bit of riparian deciduous forest around her place. She gets breeding REVI, BGGN, EWPE, and FICR while I only really get those in migration here.

Another beautiful 90° day to go for a 13-mile walk.  I posted photos from a lot of different species, but I didn't get a lot of great pics today.  I heard so many Red-bellied Woodpeckers, that my count got flagged as high in Ebird Mobile, which forced me to add a description to the species count before I could submit the checklist.

Due to a variety of circumstances, today was my first 'serious' outing in over a month, and even that was only to a farm pond half a mile from the house.  Still, between the pond and the back yard, 35 species for an August morning in SC is a pretty good day.  Highlights included an Anhinga, Spotted Sandpiper, Red-headed Woodpecker, Belted Kingfisher, Loggerhead Shrike, and Blue-gray Gnatcatcher.

I normally don't post my 3-minute parking lot checklists, but this is too fun not to share.  God, I love South Florida!  Where else can one expect to see and hear Monk Parakeets in the parking lot after leaving a restaurant?  I've heard them all summer in the same location, so today, I brought my camera and was able to get one decent shot.  The pair were very fidgety and moving around in the tree.  I got some decent audio which I posted as well.  I'll be back there with my camera and should be able to share more Monk Parakeet photos.

Today's half-marathon hike was hotter than my previous ones, as it got up to 92°!

Now that I'm using Merlin on my birding trips, I'm consistently identifying more species.  Two out of the four Loggerhead Shrike IDs, as well as my FOY Belted Kingfisher, and the Osprey were from Merlin.  I don't blindly follow the app though.  If it hears a call I'm familiar with but didn't hear, I play it back to verify before reporting.  If it hears a call I'm not familiar with, I play it back and only report it if I can verify the call from iBird Photo Sleuth's sounds for the species.

Great day.  See the checklist notes for additional details.
