Just got back from the Delaware coast, where I added four birds to my Year List, which is now up to 533.

530. Northern Gannet
531. Purple Sandpiper
532. Common Eider
533. Great Cormorant

The gannet and cormorant were ABA Area lifers, numbers 637 and 638, respectively.

What a way to end the year. I just got back from seeing Indiana's first record of Calliope Hummingbird. It has been coming to a feeder since August, but has been brought to the attention of birders only about a week or so ago. The homeowners graciously allow birders to look for the bird in their backyard as it comes to a heated feeder.

534. Calliope Hummingbird

This bird was a lifer for me (number 2542), as well as an ABA Area lifer (number 639, and my third in five days), and an Indiana state lifer (number 309).

Hopefully it will stick around for a few days so I can add it to my 2012 Year List.
