I'm in Pittsboro, NC (near Chapel Hill) and was surprised to see this gorgeous gal on a nearby pond.  I believe this is a female Bufflehead, but I'm never seen one around here, so would appreciate confirmation.  Thank you!

Thanks!  That's a new one for my (relatively short) life list!!

The good thing about a short life list is that you have a ton of new birds to see!

I know, right? I'm lucky if I get one lifer in three months!

Yeah, I’ve hit a wall with lifers. There’s only 2 birds I could potentially see that would be lifers for me this winter, and both would be pretty unlikely. I’m soooo excited for this spring!

I’m not that far north! The only regular breeders in my county are Yellow and Hooded Warblers, and of course Common Yellowthroats. I wasn’t able to see the HOWA last year, but that’s one of my priorities this spring!

Well, in the eastern half of Kansas, we do have breeding Prothonotary and Black-and-white...:classic_unsure:

We don't have too many breeding warblers here. We have: Orange-crowned, Northern Parula have bred the last couple years, Yellow, Yellow-rumped, Black-throated Gray, Hermit, MacGillvary's, Yellowthroat, and Wilson's. I know Chat's used to breed here as well, and Redstart have bred a few times.

That's a lot!

Not compared to what the Vermonters have

He he. We have records for 27 warbler species breeding in VT.
