I KEEP missing White-crowned Sparrows reported nearby, despite me checking each one in the flock. They are my biggest nemesis right now.

Look for large sparrows with weird proportions: long neck, small head. They should respond to phishing and aren’t terribly skulky.

Two checklists today:

Got 5 lifers on the first one! -   Caspian Tern, Eastern Meadowlark, Northern Harrier, Northern Rough-winged Swallow, and Northern Shoveler.

Good day at the hotspot:

Nice, I still need Eastern Meadowlark and Northern Shoveler.

Good day at the hotspot.  The Pied-billed Greb was a hotspot lifer.  That's the only reason I uploaded the photos of it that aren't too great.  I could have walked farther and gotten more species, but my time was limited, and I spent a lot of it photographing the Palm Warblers:

It's grebe, by the way. Nice checklist, jealous of the southern specialties like Mottled Duck and Limpkin.

Ty 4 the correction.  I actually mispronounce it the same way I misspelled it.  ?  I'll pay more attention when speaking, so I actually sound like a birder. ?

There are many more Mottled Ducks in my area than Limpkins, but the lakes and canals produce enough apple snails to keep some around.
