I Feel Happy Of Myself

The fog cleared to several miles of visibility yesterday.  When that happened, a bunch of birds dropped in to the Island.  Best birds: Red-throated Pipit, Yellow-green Vireo, Black-throated Blue Warbler, and Chestnut-collared Longspur.  The Summer Tanager continued, as did some Tennesse Warblers.  I went up and slept at the lighthouse, in case of massive fallout this morning.  Sadly, life was pain.  Visibility was too far (I could see SF when I woke up) and all I saw were a Violet-green and some Waxwings.

Yellow-green Vireo.  7th Island Record.

My first Red-throated Pipit.  (HE,IKR)

  1. That pipit closeup is intense. Ive only seen one. Mildly embarrassing.
