Nah, that’s the new & improved tree style feeder!

Seeing a Lapland Longspur in a tree is a mind-bender in and of itself.

 

Seeing one at a feeder?!?! 

That would be literally the most insane thing ever.

Northern Bobwhite:

I was confident in getting the lifer today, as lately, everybody who goes to this hotspot reports the species.  I heard the call within ten minutes of arriving, but it was a major pain to actually see the bird.  On at least two occasions, I ventured off the trail into a deep weedy/grassy area and could tell from the proximity of the sound that I was practically stepping on the bird but couldn’t find it.  Finally, I flushed one and got some recognizable pics.  I didn’t upload those, as they are pretty bad.  Later, I got some decent looks at one of the birds on the ground.

Black-whiskered Vireo - really, really. 🙂

Got the real thing today.  Ty to @Quiscalus quiscula for quickly pointing out my mistake yesterday.  I had enough time to take down the observation before I was officially busted by a reviewer.    No great photos, but what I have is good enough to prove the observation:

Those are rare/uncommon up in Washington?

At least not where I live. I've had them nest in my yard twice 

Further north they are. In King Co where I am they’re still flagged as rare. Although they’re becoming more frequent and seem to be slowly expanding their range north.
