I went back to the bird preserve with my father. Three FOY and one audio lifer:

  • Common Yellowthroat (FOY)
  • Ross's Goose (FOY)
  • Long-billed Dowitcher (FOY)
  • Sora (audio lifer)

Also noteworthy were the four Northern Harriers, four singing Crissal Thrashers, Myrtle Yellow-rumped Warbler, and three American Robins (uncommon at this location).

Woohoo! Got not just 1, but two screech owls! Did not see these until fall last year!

Why add the count of 0 for the GHOW? If it’s not on the list, it’s obvious that you didn’t see or hear it. But, if you really want to say that you didn’t see or hear one, you could add in the main checklist comments that you didn’t see or hear one. Ebird doesn’t want people to add the count of 0 to show that a bird wasn’t present.

Feeling a bit greedy now having seen 2 in the same month, but also proud of my detective skills as this was another guess. Less than 10 minutes from my house in a residential area of all places.


Wanna send one my way? If so there's a chance a Kirtland's Warbler might show up in your area this next summer 😉

I'm never sure where to draw the line on what to post here.  I don't post incidentals, and I don't post 3-minute supermarket parking lot checklists with a handful of species.  Not too much going on here, but I did include two great photos.  I've only gone to this place twice; both times failed attempts to locate a Great Blue Heron (Great White) that other birders keep finding here:


Very, very little overall going on here, as too many of the flyovers were too badly lit for positive IDs, and my focus was only in the directions the Lesser Nighthawks could have been coming from.  I did get a lifer though, the Lesser Nighthawk:
