County List Update

Four months gone and in spite of pinched neck nerves and out-of-state travel, my list is doing pretty well.  I’m at 79 species and most of those seen with my Vizsla alongside.   I’ve missed some birds early (like Pine Grosbeak) that hopefully I can pick up at the end of the year.  No big deal — this has been an interesting low key effort.  I suspect that my target of 170 is about ten too high but we’ll see as we proceed.  Here’s a couple of local birds I got this week:

I saw this FOY Spotted Sandpiper yesterday at Wrightsville Reservoir wet lands, along with four others.

I saw this FOY Solitary Sandpiper yesterday at Wrightsville Reservoir wetlands, along with three others.

This Warbling Vireo was singing up a storm the other morning at Berlin Pond.  It's nice to have buds instead of leaves on the trees.

    Thank you, Dick. I’m going to call my friend Dennis White of Cold Pocket Farm and go canoe the Wrightsville Reservoir tomorrow.

    Good luck on your list! one thing that’s great about doing such a list is that it gets you out to see a lot of great birds in your own area.
