FINALLY got Redheads today!!! Along with a drake tufted duck and a continuing Canvasback I found a week or two ago, the lake was windy and exciting! Inland I had 4 different Hoary Redpolls, and a rostrata/Icelandica CORE!

Black-legged Kittiwake!!  All I was looking for was waterfowl on the river to up my February numbers.  Almost didn't even stop.  Pulled in to a snow covered pull-off with my dog, and it flew by and landed where I was able to get decent looks at it.  Lesson learned, have the physical field guide with you.  I searched on 'Gull" in the Sibley app to rule out Little Gull.  The dark collar bothered me, so finally gave it a second look at home and flipped through the guide and said "Wait Kittiwake has a dark collar", then looked much closer at my pics.

Northern Pintails today were a lifer for me! Unfortunately they were very far away... 😭

I could have gotten them long ago, but I can't drive. So my brother took me there because it was my birthday. https://ebird.org/checklist/S82967342

Happy Birthday! The closest I’ve ever been too one is about 200 yards, consider yourself lucky 😂
