Good morning, Whatbirders, and welcome to October!!!  

I'm at the Carolina Bird Club's fall meeting in coastal SC.  I decided last week that the first bird I saw at the event would be this week's bird.  Ladies, gentlemen, and @lonestranger

Caspian Tern

Mythical species.

Not my best but my favorite since there are multiple species. Saw these rarely in Colorado fairly abundant in Florida though not always easy pull out of the all the Royal Terns.

Good morning, Whatbirders!  Autumn put its foot down this morning; it's 44F here in central SC.  Great weather to stop at a couple of hotspots around Charlotte on my way to the NASCAR race.

Let's do one of those shorebirds you shouldn't look for at the shore:

American Woodcock

I had the pleasure of seeing this bird a couple of times in Loveland, Colorado. They are rare in Colorado but this one showed up at the same location a few winters in row. I have two good photos of this bird the one I chose and one that is a close up. I went with this one because it shows more of the whole bird.

@IKLland @Johnd May I join the club, please? I have never seen one either. 

I apparently have led a sheltered life or have made a wrong turn somewhere because I didn't have a Tern for last week. 🙂

 

Caspian terns are only common on the coasts. and are very similar to Royals.
