    Scouting out potential owl holes for weeks paid off when I hiked about 1000 ft up a mountain this morning. Until now, Northern Saw-Whet Owl had only been a heard-only species for me! Northern Saw-Whet Owl by David Tonnessen, on Flickr

    Well this morning I got an eBird report of a White Wagtail being seen at a public spot and not a surprise I went since it was on the way to where I volunteer at. One point when I was there, up to 35 SD County birders were there and that total number of birders at one spot hasn't happened in years. Amazing lifer even if it was distant. A couple of excellent birders figured it out that this bird was the same individual seen on military land a few days ago that is about 40 miles north of this spot. It was even a county bird for Guy McCaskie who some of you have heard of. His response was the best thing I heard today when I was there. He said "Great" that it was the first chaseable San Diego County record of a White Wagtail!

    With the recent topic of leks in the west, I just got my lifer Greater Sage-Grouse today. Some were lekking farther out that we scoped, but this one was much more cooperative. First lifer of 2017! Greater Sage-Grouse by David Tonnessen, on Flickr Also saw my first Wyoming Ground Squirrels. They have such unique insect-like vocalizations!

    Had a great day birding today. Started off on a hilarious note, with my mom and I being asked if we wanted weed by an old, sweet-looking old man in a parking lot. As soon as I rolled up my window, I burst out laughing and he noticed and got a huge smile on his face. Definitely my favorite moment of the day even though we got a lot of good birds. Anyway, we went to Mission Trails Regional Park, arguably the best spot in San Diego for a large number of migrants. It lived up to its reputation, and we got 8 warblers along with many other species. Here's the checklist: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S35996114

    On Sunday I successfully chased lifer Rusty Blackbird at the Bellingham Costco parking lot. She gave excellent views as she foraged with her Brewer's Blackbird buddies Much easier than having to pick through hundreds of Brewer's Blackbird with a scope Also got a nice pic of a LTDU at Blaine Harbour, it's not often when we see them nice 'n close!

    Anna's Hummingbird Here's a story about the image. For some reason, I had my camera set on single shot, not my usual 8 frames per second. During the half second the bird was in front of me, I lifted my camera, pressed the shutter once, and captured a single frame. This image was the result. The fact that I was able to capture it was pure luck.

    This was a snap shot of a very active bird. After I took it I didn't think it would be a good shot, but although it isn't as sharp as I would have liked, I like the photo. I don't see Blue-headed Vireo's very often and they will be moving on shortly. Blue-headed Vireo by Mark Goodwin, on Flickr
