Hi all!! Sorry I haven't been on in a while

I wanted to update:

Yesterday I went on the Clermont Christmas bird count. we saw 86 Sp. (I saw 85 personally), including a rarities 1 Snail Kite, 15 Rusty Blackbirds and 20 Barn Swallows.

My 2019 yearlist is 87 after yesterday. I got 4 lifers (Easter Screech-owl, Eastern Meadowlark, Vesper Sparrow and Rusty Blackbird) which brings my lifelist to 192.

Also got 14 county lifers, which brings my county list to 118.

Glad you're back! :classic_happy: Congrats on the lifers!  I'm at 37 for the year.

And Fyn's picture of a Barred Owl, I think he was active on this forum a long time ago as well. I wonder if they looked at the whatbird's YB flickr group for pictures

I doubt it.  I think it was creativecommons.org?

Yeah, who knows. It's weird either way.

How's birding going with everyone?

We've had a TUVU, RWBL so far.  I have 56 species so far this year.   


Side note, Fyn had some salamander pics in the newsletter too.

We are returning from a robotics competition today! We ended up 14th out of 32 teams which is actually pretty good. But our robot was good enough that we got picked to be an alliance partner with the number one team, and two others in the top four wanted us too! Semifinals went smooth. The first finals was won by our two alliance partners. Then they ran their best robot and our robot, and believe it or not, their robot unplugged itself mid match! We actually carried them, getting 70 extra points in the last 1 and a half minutes, winning by 20 points! We thought for sure we had lost but we didnt, winning the whole thing for our alliance captain, who is now going to worlds. We just get a trophy and medals but we're happy with that, especially since our entire robot was built in a month and a half, long after other teams had already been competing for 2 or more months. The final alliance (we're in back):

WOW!  Congrats, Mel!  

I didn't know you were in to robotics.  Learn something new every day!

Time for a revive! I'm asking a bunch of people to rejoin from discord. Hopefully we'll get more people here soon. I'll try to post a lot!

Recently I got to see a flock of Gray-crowned Rosy-Finches and lifer Black Rosy-Finch! They're super gorgeous. The pink on black is really stunning. Also, I don't remember if I posted this but I made a Kestrel cam for my box. Their names are Bob and Mary and I think they're getting close to nesting 🙂

Pretty much the first Pine Warbler of the year!
Hey all! I'm a young (16), Christian birder/photographer from South NJ whose name is Joseph!
(Kind of cheesy lol)
Been birding for a few years now, but I've been interested in birds since I was nine and nature since as far back as I can remember.
