How was your weekend? Any good birds? Don’t be shy… tell us about your best bird!
My best bird of the weekend was a Brown Creeper on a tree outside my kitchen window. Corey’s best birds were Cattle Egret and Black-legged Kittiwake, the former a year state bird and the latter a year bird and an all-time Queens bird for him. You know he’s psyched! Charlie was too busy organizing the announcement of the new 10,000 Birds Conservation Club to even look out the window, but he definitely deserves a pass on account of his Herculean efforts.

My highlight for the weekend was a day of 24 species of the Anatidaes including a flock of a couple hundred Tundra Swans, a life bird for me. Was a great Saturday birding!

Golden-crowned Kinglet, a new bird for the county that I swear I’ve seen before. Never mind then, I’ve seen it now!
Ruby-crowned kinglet, in my front yard.
I enjoyed watching a group of Hooded Mergansers swim about with their crests all fanned out. It was the first time I really got a good view of them. Lovely!
Green Thorntails of course!! http://janbirdingblog.blogspot.com/2009/11/thorntails-at-cerro-azul.html
Definately Ancient Murrelet on Lake Michigan with Little Gull and Parasitic Jaeger being close seconds!
A Phainopepla that somehow ended up in Ontario, hanging out in a suburb north of Toronto. A very unexpected lifer 🙂
Hey everyone, it is Thanksgiving Day! I’m happy with my extra day off, and I am planning to make something fun that’ll probably involve a moto trip and seeing something new in Le Mars I haven’t seen yet.
You write new post at Thanksgiving?
A bold red male cardinal to brighten up my otherwise barren yard!
