Five lifers today highlighted by a California Condor. Had to settle for distant pics but still a treat to see.

Also got Phainopepla, California Towhee, Whimbrel, and Long-billed Curlew.

Better views than what I've had. I've lived in the state for 8 years now, and I've seen them once, and that was going 65 over the grapevine on I5. That's great that you got to see them.

In Southern FL. Finally got White-tailed Kite, one of the more common birds I don’t have, although I haven’t been to TX or CA. And the highlight of the day, an absolutely STUNNING adult male Western Spindalis on Pelican Island. Beautiful bird and only my 5th code 4.
