By the end of April 25 last year I was on 231, so at least I'm being consistent!

Only one new bird today, probably the result of a cold snap that brought a couple of inches of snow the day before yesterday, and therefore affected migration.

172. Northern Parula

I am currently down south in Joplin, Missouri attending the Spring Meeting of the Audubon Society of Missouri. I added six (6) species of birds to my 2012 Missouri Year List.

165. Yellow-throated Warbler
166. Gray Catbird
167. White-eyed Vireo
168. Summer Tanager
169. Pine Warbler
170. Carolina Chickadee

* I expect to add a few more today at Roaring River State Park. Might get Painted Bunting, Scissor-tailed Flycatcher and some others.

Two more new birds for the year, so I'm now up to 179.

178. Baltimore Oriole
179. Grasshopper Sparrow

I also saw an Empidonax flycatcher, but it wasn't calling so I couldn't identify it, and therefore can't count it for my Year List.

You're really zooming along, Larry! Looks like Joplin was particularly productive.
Unfortunately, we're still cursed with southerly winds here and songbird migration this year has produced worse birding than in almnost any past year. I'm heading to the coast again this weekend in hopes of seeing some shorebirds and - fingers crossed - some more warblers.

I didn't go birding today, but I did see a new bird for the year in my yard. It was singing high in a spruce tree and it took me quite a while to spot it, but I eventually got good a look at it.

188. Cape May Warbler

As birding trips go todays was pretty awful, for me at least... Dipped the Woodchat Shrike near St. Just, Cornwall and then missed the Red-rumped Swallow at Marazion, just couldn't get on the blighter that my mate found. Gutted as it would have been a UK lifer! Did get a few year ticks though.

175. Reed Warbler
176. Sedge Warbler
177. Ringed Plover (How has it taken this long!?)
