That's what happens when you reach 1/3 of a century 😋

There are three stages in a man's life:

He believes in Santa Claus.

He does not believe in Santa Claus.

He becomes Santa Claus.

Guess I skipped the first one - I never believed in Santa and I've had white hairs and a beard since I was 18. 😄 The white still hasn't taken over yet though.  :classic_cool:   I do hope you quit believing in Santa before you reach 30 though Kevin.

Same here for songbirds…..shorebird migration is really picking up here right now.

I was able to see the start of shorebird migration in the Bay of Fundy when I was in New Brunswick, which was really cool, but unfortunately there are barely any places to see shorebirds here, even during migration.

Keep an eye on retention ponds at big stores or strip malls, and any ponds that have lowered water levels.  I picked up two lifer shorebirds at a pond near the house when it's been lowered a couple of time in the last three years, and two more within the last five at a retention pond at a hot spot.

Fyi, lichess is a nice and clean interface and is also entirely free. They have some good training resources too (e.g.).

Tomorrow I’ll hopefully be chasing a continuing Stilt Sandpiper!

Me and a dozen or more other birders were unsuccessful in finding it. If it’s seen again tomorrow I may try on Friday.

Is something wrong with eBird? It is taking FOREVER to do anything, it finally does it, but it takes a really long time, it was doing it earlier to.

I have made this entire post and it still has not loaded a page that it was trying to load when I started this post.

I guess this explains it.
