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.



 

Yep, Grebe should be pronounced "greeb" actually. I pronounced it wrong for several months myself!

Two checklists today:

Boring, but well worth the time to get the Carolina Wren photo lifer:  I normally only post high-quality pictures of Red-shouldered Hawks, but this one was a photo lifer for the hotspot, so I had to add some of what I had.

Any checklist with two lifers (Blue Grosbeak and House Wren) is an awesome checklist!

We just had our fall garage sale, which meant a lot of sitting around in front of the house again for two days. On Saturday, I had a friend over, so we chatted a lot and had music going while plenty of people shopped. However, today it was just me and only five customers showed up all morning, so I could watch and listen to a huge variety of birds.

Two checklists today:

This was the most species I've reported on this short boardwalk trail.  I'm getting to know the path better, and I did spend a lot of time here, walking it 3 or 4 times.  I normally do not upload so many bad pictures, but I don't have too many photo lifers for this hotspot, and like to keep a few photo memories of all hotspot species I find:

Good day at the hotspot:

Two checklists today:

https://ebird.org/checklist/S121006578 - The boardwalk has been slow for me, except for early in the A.M.

https://ebird.org/checklist/S121011318 - A lot of species for the shot distance and relatively short walk, and most importantly, 2 lifers, The Eastern Phoebe and Indigo Bunting.  The White-eyed Vireo was a hotspot lifer.

This place can be boring, but it has potential, so I'll keep going back:

Incredible trip!  This is the most species I've reported on a checklist, and I got a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker lifer.  In addition, I got a great photo of a recent lifer, Eastern Phoebe.  My only other photo of the species from that lifer checklist is badly out of focus.  Edit - I also got my best photo of a Sora.  My only other photo is pretty bad.

Incredible checklist, as I got 4 lifers, including the Mega-Rare Red-legged Honeycreeper.  The other lifers were the Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Summer Tanager, and Tennessee Warbler.  See the checklist notes for more derails.

Pretty boring, but I know this place has a lot more to offer.  I need to go back with some birders who know the place well:

Good day in the neighborhood.  While I'm still spending a lot of time looking for warblers in trees and bushes, my checklists from this hotspot are going to have fewer species than they normally would have had.  Had I taken another 10 minutes to walk the next section of the canal, I'm certain I could have observed some more of the common species here, such as Anhinga, Great Egret, Green Heron, and Little Blue Heron.
