Your county’s current rarity’s!

Recommended Posts

Leave a link to your county’s rare alert link. I’m curious what other people have going on. Earlier this year, we had a Thick-Billed Kingbird from January to March, and a Mexican Duck from January to March! We STILL have the masked booby that arrived here in NOVEMBER!

Most of the birds that trip the alert are common subspecies in my county. Some birds I would say are rare don’t trip the alert either, so im not sure what’s up with that. But, we’ve had a few actual rare birds this year. We’ve had Rough-legged Hawk recently, a few Scaup, and some Gadwall (they didn’t trip the filter). Earlier we had some early shovelers, teal, and pintails, and a week or two ago I had a super early Marsh Wren.

My county has been pretty crazy, though these north winds have slowed things down a bit.

Prothonotary Warbler a few weeks ago: Lifer for me, very hard in the county.

Kentucky Warbler: Second county record, first on almost 20 years.

Kirtland’s Warbler: Second County record! And on my friends sister’s land too.

White-eyed Vireo: Probably a dozen or so previous records, but this was the first really chasable one.
