The past two weeks or so have been amazing to me! I've gotten a Summer Tanager (self found), 3 Tennessee Warblers (two self found), 2 Chestnut-sided Warblers, a Blackpoll Warbler, a Blackpoll/Bay-breasted Warbler (self found), a possible Redstart, a Northern Waterthrush, a Prothonatary Warbler, a Calliope Hummingbird (self found), a Dusky Flycatcher (self found), a Semipalmated Sandpiper, and a Solitary Sandpiper (self found)! Been a great fall in the Valley!

The rarities are really coming in fast now, a Dickcissel was reported this morning, but I’m going to be very busy for the next month or so. At least I have a pelagic to go on. 

You Californians are so lucky...no rarities in my county since a Sandhill Crane on Sep 9. And nothing that would be a lifer for me has been reported in my county for the past month!

Yeah pretty slow around here too. There has been like one or two things I've wanted to see in the past 3 weeks

Add in just now a Magnolia and Blackpoll warbler! Really annoying that they show up the day after I was in that park.

I don't know what's worse, there being no rare birds to chase, or there being rare birds that you're not able to chase! I've been busy getting ready to bird the coast tomorrow and my pelagic on Sunday, and there's been a Black-throated Sparrow, a Gray Flycatcher, and a Brewer's Sparrow found this morning in sac. There's also been a Parula and Blackburnian Warbler recently I was unable to chase.

And now at the same location a Lucy’s warbler! Of course it’s on the other side of the county. ?

Yep! I'm actually going to be on the same boat as @Hasan.  I'm really really really hoping for a Least Storm-Petrel. If you can't tell from that, I want a Least Storm-Petrel pretty badly. 

Good luck, I think a trip a week and a half earlier would've been perfect for them in Northern California with the hurricane, but one might stick around.

I'm not expecting any, however all I can do is hope!
