chipperatl Posted June 6, 2022 Share Posted June 6, 2022 First off "Y'all" need to turn that thermostat down!!! My birding buddy couldn't take that crazy heat that was there last week. Best we managed was about 1 mile in 1 hour before it was time to head back to the truck. At one point it was so hot he wouldn't even get out of the truck. Thick, black fur on a Lab don't mix with the climate there. Trip Report Detailed Blog Post Cliff Notes version Lifer Swainson's Warbler - audio only after Hercules downed all the water within 30 minutes of the walk. Dipped on Gray Kingbird - but managed audio and video of Lifer Clapper Rail, and male Painted Bunting also a Lifer. Good timing allowed me to see Sam Cooper grab another birder and book to where he had re-found the Gray Kingbird. I followed and managed to snag Lifer #4 of the trip. Lifer Mississippi Kite seen flying with best looks at Swallow-tailed Kite. Shortly followed by Lifer Northern Bobwhite (audio only), and Cattle Egrets flying in the distance. Best looks at a White-eyed Vireo and first look at a male Blue Grosbeak. Better looks later in the day at Cattle Egrets. Mississippi Kites flying over where I was staying, just as a storm was heading in. Boastful photos 13 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
