Last weekend while birdwatching I saw two firsts, one was a Northern Gannet, the other a Sora. It's easy for me to have firsts since I haven't been birdwatching seriously (actually IDing birds) for very long. I think I may have been lucky to see the Sora though, as it was really hiding... Others from the day... Osprey Northern Flicker Savannah Sparrow Wilson's Snipe Red-winged Blackbird Gorgeous thistles very busy with butterfly and bee action!
Here are a few birds I saw on Bio-Lab Road at MINWR earlier this week. It was late in the day and the sun was going down, but it certainly was clear with blue skies.
