@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. 😔

No 😔, I'm stuck down in Cali. Nice Shot, though!

I did get Nashville Warbler this morning in my backyard, though!

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

Jealous. SE AZ is the place to be right now, but then again, that’s pretty much always true.

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?

Wilson's Phalarope today, thanks to @HamRHead for finding her yesterday. (I got the Marbled Godwit he found a few weeks ago, too! He's a rarity magnet.)

Terrible photo, because she was way out.

ABA 367/World 412/Photos 410

Was out desperately trying to get photo lifer of Macgillivrays Warbler before I leave Cali and found this rarity instead:

Tennessee Warbler.

 

Moving from Cali to Virginia next week so should be able to pickup quite a few lifers.
