Your checklist of the day!


Recommended Posts

We took a drive down to Willow Beach in Arizona and stopped at a couple places on the way back. Three checklists combined into a trip report:

Nothing new for the year, but notable sightings:

  • Lesser Black-backed Gull
  • 450 Ruddy Ducks at Willow Beach, which is unusually high
  • African Collared-Dove (I've noticed that escapees are listed at the bottom of trip reports now)

Like I said in the checklist notes, it was a bad time of the day to go birding, which is why I didn't see to many birds.  I'm actually surprised I got that many species:


The slow days are always the days with the most species. I remember going birding with my dad, and the hotspot we went to was very slow, but we ended up with 38 species somehow!

"Slow" day at Lake Camanche, at least compared to normal. Still can't complain though, I had some really nice birds! Fourteen Red-breasted Mergansers on a central valley lake is quite unexpected, to say the least! 


I need to go birding at a lake again. I got my lifer Common Loon at Lake Itasca Minnesota. Also side note: we used to have a bunch of different ducks that would all be lifers on a pond(near the house) for like a month(at our old house), except I was very bad with ducks(and others) so I didn’t ID like any. 😥

Very good list, especially for this location.


Changed my mind. Went birding when I got home, and look at the amount of birds! 400 American Robins. 415 RWBL, 13 Rusty Blackbird, and a total of 34 species! I also got some good photos.

Better counts than yesterday on the blackbirds! 30 species, almost 500 Robins(I individually counted them. Took me 25 minutes and I don't think I got them all. 361 RWBL which I also individually counted. 8 YRWA, my highest count this year!


I also really like this checklist from earlier today. My best and favorite photo of a mourning dove!
