@Nivalis, I just wanted to tell you that Chukars are just game birds that don't have a successful wild population in Maine. They're not ABA countable. You can count it on your own list but please don't put it on eBird.

I know, I was just excited because I had never seen one before and never thought I would see one right by my house

Anybody on here seen the Siberian Accentor hanging around Woodland, WA? There have been a steady stream of birders from all over the NW showing up to see it. Been by briefly twice myself but it wasn't out at the moment either time and I didn't have time to stick around and wait. 😔

#415 - Berylline Hummingbird, and I'm hoping #416 will be Crescent-chested Warbler later this week😉 

Congrats, and I'm sure you got the CCWAs!

 

The Berylline has become less reliable.  Previously it was seen throughout the day, now it seems to be only around 5:30 am and 7 pm.  I found that out when I was there for multiple hours, but it finally showed up at 7 pm.

The next morning the warblers were found pretty easily.  Usually were way high up, but we found a couple about 100 yards up the trail which were much closer to the ground.

That's what I've heard! I was able to see the Berylinne around six times each for a couple of minutes, because that day it was showing up essentially every 20 minutes or so. The next day, I think it only showed up late in the afternoon/evening. And actually- nope, I haven't gotten the Crescent-chested Warblers yet. On my way down from Madera Canyon that night, actually ended up hitting a Javelina and doing- although I didn't realize it at the time- over $2000 worth of damage to my car 😕

:classic_mellow: did you at least get a vulture sighting for your troubles?
