Self-found 3rd(?) County record of Spotted Towhee, IL. Oddly enough there's currently another Spotted Towhee on the opposite side of the county that has been there since the CBC.

Northern Wheatear in Upper Sandusky, Ohio. Obviously a lifer, and worth the drive! Seemed to be doing well despite the cold, and it appeared to be eating mealworms someone had put out for it. 
 

Additional rare birds seen were Harlequin Duck, Black Vulture, and Brant, all of which were lifers for me.

Vulture lifer

These two words don't belong in the same paragraph little lone the same sentence.

I know, Vultures aren't as common other places as here. The thing is I can see 200 in one day here, so it just confuses my mind.

We don’t get Black vultures where I live! So Black Vulture would be a lifer for me, too. Heck, I saw a Turkey Vulture a few days ago and it made it on the rare bird alert because we lose them in the winter.
