  1. I believe you mean Least Bittern which would be out of range in Washington. I checked eBird and as far as I can see there has never been one seen in Washington so if your bird were one it would be a true rarity. Also, Least Bittern is a very small bird, only 13 inches long. You mentioned that you initially thought it was a Pelican which is a much larger bird, over 4 feet long and a wingspan of over 6 feet.
  2. Added the Scissor-tailed Flycatcher today. Consolation prize for missing the Fork-tailed. Never been to this place either. Really nice grassland habitat. I was only there about half an hour & had Bobolink, Meadowlark, Kestrel, Eastern Kingbird, YB Cuckoo, Savannah & over a dozen Grasshopper Sparrows. No Dickcissel, I did look . Will be back there again in the future though.
  3. Agree, 100% GB Heron. Also, just for the record Bitterns are occasionally see in trees. Here's an example; http://www.jeaniron.ca/2012/bitternPP.htm
  4. Yes I guess they are growing on trees this year . I had one already, sadly it was in NY though. It was worth it to have him and a Henslow's Sparrow within 50 yards of each other trying to out sing one another though.
  5. Yeah, sorry about that ! I saw no mention of it either. There were people who had been scanning for Shearwaters before I was there yesterday & they said everything was way out. I only heard Great & Sooty mentioned too. On another note, added Blue Grosbeak.

  7. Took advantage of an unexpected chance to make a run to Cape May. Fork-tailed Flycatcher was seen about an hour before I arrived & not again until about an hour after I left . Hopefully Matt will have better luck. Did add Black-bellied Whistling Duck, Common Tern, Royal Tern & Northern Bobwhite.
  8. Nice!! Banding at Sandy Hook I take it?
  9. Nice!! Hopefully it will stick for a while, earliest I can get there is Wednesday. My daughter volunteers at Raptors Trust & she never even mentioned it being there :-O
  10. From Brig 5/16/17 Pectoral Sandpiper. Sorry, didn't realize it was on there already.
  11. Sorry, I knew the one bird was a Dunlin. Should have been more specific. Reasons I was thinking Pectoral on the other are the wings seem to short for White-rumped, the top of the legs appear to be yellow (the rest of the legs appear to be mud covered), and the base of the bill seems to be showing some yellow again in spite of the mud. Anyone else want to weigh in?
  12. Sorry, seen last week in southern NJ.
  13. Thinking a Pectoral Sandpiper with muddy legs & bill?? Thanks! IMG_7237 by Greg Miller, on Flickr IMG_7235 by Greg Miller, on Flickr
  14. Added 5/19/2017 Kentucky Warbler (possible breeding pair??!!) Schoolhouse Cove Rd., W. Milford.
  15. Forgot Eastern Wood Peewee 5/17/2017 at Garret Mtn.
