Long-eared Owl

Lifer (obviously) Ivory Gull. INCREDIBLE to see! Full story here: https://idahobirder.weebly.com/blog/ivory-gull-adventure

A productive whirlwind trip to South Georgia. (got a few other neat birds to, that were on the rare side, but they weren't lifers!) Sandhill Cranes by midgetinvasion, on Flickr Vermillion Fl

I finally saw one of my nemesis birds this morning... a northern shrike! 

Been walking around this one area near my house at sunrise for the last 3 weeks trying to find one (and to complete the weekly data bars). It was chasing/being chased by a magpie and flew about 20ft in front of me and up and away.

Now I have to continue walking around until I get a photo 😪

Got one nemesis bird this morning, as well as 2 and a half other lifers! Gadwall was the nemesis, also had a Tundra Swan and Eurasian Wigeon. Greater Scaup was the half, as I have seen them before, but I hadn’t used eBird yet.

I managed to get a photo of my lifer shrike. 
Bad news, he was on the side of the pathway that was in front of the sun so he’s mostly a shadow. 

Guess I’ll still be walking around until I get a better photo. Starting to think I’ll never stop walking around those ponds 🤔

Wilson's Snipe!!!!

No photo??? You must have seen the same one(s) I saw when I was a kid and my Daddy took me Snipe hunting!! I stood there for a couple or three hours and held the bag like he told me to until I couldn't stand the mosquitoes any longer, finally walked home and found Daddy sitting there all cozy. Then he had the nerve to ask me why I left my post before the Snipe he was supposed to flush towards me got to me so I could catch them in the bag!!! 😠
