Yeah, they’re super tough to find in the fall. Even harder in the spring, when everything is zooming through that doesn’t stick around. I hadn’t even considered it as a possibility for this spring!

Yeah. I’m so jealous of your warbler divercity! Wait, why did it correct to divercity? It’s diversity! Anyways, there common year round here.

Carolina Wren. I submitted these to eBird. I live in Minnesota, so this was really a surprise. It absolutely made my day!   There have been a few other sightings in Minnesota, some very recently and within 10 miles or so of where I saw this bird.

That’s presumably from the cagebird trade fro Tijuana. There are a few real records along the Colorado River. 

No, it's not. I'm in Minnesota. We only have House wrens.

Awesome! Too bad about the Falcon, but they’re only going to get more common as they expand their range, I hope. You’ll probably see one flying over your house sooner or later 😉
