Here’s my list of birds seen by yours truly.
Some of you birders who are longer in the tooth than myself may think, “You’ve never seen a Veery?” and the answer would be NO.
This is my second full year of birding, and with little kids and limited traveling funds, I get to very few good birding places. And I haven’t been on any sponsored, guided hiking trips. It’s all me, all the time.
So I am rather proud of my list for this trip.
(Did I sound too defensive in the above paragraph? Sorry…didn’t mean to)
(I had a lofty goal of listing these in taxonomic order, but it’s late and I’m tired)
*Listing with an asterick is a Life Bird
Black-throated Green Warbler*
Great Crested Flycatcher*
Heard: American Bittern*
Double Crested Cormorant
Great Blue Heron
Cape May Warbler
Black and White Warbler
So that’s 41 birds total seen or heard in a weekend, and 18 Life Birds.
Not bad, for just little ol’ me.
