    Chase Lake Grasslands north of Medina is another good spot. Also Horsehead Lake WMA (North of Dawson).

    Wrapping up the Yellow Rails and Rice festival tomorrow. Another great year, the trips I was leading saw some great birds. Got my ABA 500, White-tailed Kite, a few days ago, and then got my world 700, Couch's Kingbird, right down the road! Also have had great Yellow Rail numbers, a Ruff (!!!), great looks at Le Conte's Sparrow, Ross's Goose, Sedge Wren, King, Virginia, Sora, etc., etc. Also, I caught a Black Rail! Last night I was fortunate enough to lead the Yellow Rails and Rice festival's first ever organized attempt at seeing a Black Rail. We were successful! We dragged lines through a field and I spotted one as it flushed and quickly got the butterfly net down over it, capturing the first ever Black Rail to be banded in Louisiana! First Black Rail I've ever actually seen! Also caught a Yellow Rail. Definitely one of the coolest things I've ever done Black Rail in hand by Jack Rogers, on Flickr

    Here's a Swainon's Warbler. Not the best shots but IDable for sure.

    Late to the party but I live in Mt Pleasant, which was in totality but went to McClellanville to my friend's farm and camped out there the night before and hung around the farm until the eclipse. Had an additional 30 seconds of viewing time compared to Charleston/Mt Pleasant and got better weather too! Think I made a good decision for only a 30 minute drive.

    Yeah, Bull's Island is good for sure. But, in the summer it is hellish. To get to the beach is several miles round trip, which doesn't sound that bad, but it is fill to the brim with mosquitoes, horseflies, deerflies, and other biting flies, usually 100+ degrees before noon, 90% humidity, plus the burning sunlight makes it pretty awful between May and late September.

    Got back from my roadtrip 2 days ago. Left on the 13th with another YB friend of mine in Charlotte. Covered 14 states and 2 Canadian provinces. Went out to Glacier NP in MT and back. Got 273 species, including lots of yearbirds and 18 lifers: Ring-necked Pheasant, Henslow's Sparrow, Trumpeter Swan, Kirtland's Warbler, Connecticut Warbler, Great Gray Owl, Yellow-bellied Flycatcher, Mourning Warbler, Black-backed Woodpecker, Chestnut-collared Longspur, Baird's Sparrow, Sharp-tailed Grouse, Sprague's Pipit, Boreal Chickadee, Spruce Grouse, White-winged Crossbill, Sagebrush Sparrow, and Whooping Crane. Great and very successful trip. Picture editing starts tomorrow. If you want to view some scenery shots there are some on my personal VSCO at www.vsco.co/jack4rogers/images/1. Later this week I will have a document uploaded with all the birds we heard/saw, mammals, and herps. Pretty amazing trip of a lifetime and looking to do Alaska next summer!

    Well, considering that the Columbia River mouth is on the border of Oregon and Washington, and therefore not north of Seattle, I'd say I do know...
  10. Whatbird's Young Birders!

    You won't see any in Oregon. It's a very debatable species, most in Washington are unclear too. From what I understand, you have to go considerably north of Seattle to even start to get into a pure NOCR range.

    Or maybe you could all just quit ****posting and boasting about stuff nobody cares about. Or actually read what people say.

    Since Utah, like Idaho (as well as all states in the US, except South Dakota), has a graduated licensing provision, you are allowed to drive in Utah so long as you are obeying whatever rules the Idaho learners permit has. You are federally protected under Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations under the USDOT/DHS.
  13. Whatbird's Young Birders!

    Why can't you drive in Utah? It's a federal law that any standard drivers license/permit can be used in any state as I understand.

    Got the film developed. Here's mostly scenery and the scorpion and some shots from the Pima Air museum. https://www.flickr.com/photos/90726323@N05/albums/72157680834887530
