    Thanks! I knew it sounded familiar but didn't even consider them. They aren't very common in that particular area.

    Recently purchased a digital recorder with the intention of improving my birding by ear skills. Hoping making my own recordings would help imprint them on my brain ;-) Heard one last week in northern New Jersey that is giving me trouble. Probably something common but as I said my skills really need improvement. Here's a link to the recording; https://clyp.it/f2p0z25w Thanks in advance for the help!!

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
