Before I had to go into work, the yard FOS finally got Rose-breasted
Grosbeak, House Wren, Gray Catbird, Yellow Warbler, Black & White Warbler,
and Yellow-rumped Warbler. A couple Chipping sparrows, and quite a large
flock of new White-throated Sparrows also arrived. All these birds made it
really tough to head into work for the rest of the day.
For anyone interested, I spent a couple weeks in West TX and ended up
adding 3 more species of owl to my "Big Owl Year" bringing my total to #11
of #19 for North American Owl Species. Completing this photo/book project
is starting to feel like a reality, not too far out of reach. AZ in August
for a hopeful 4-5 more species and I'll be in the home stretch.
I also ended up with 39 new lifers there. Should have been more, but my
timing was off a few weeks...they pushed through early. I did get Colima
warbler though, so that was great.
This is the most wonderful time of year. Hope to see you all out there
enjoying the birds and beautiful weather.
