Saturday, May 27:

Waterloo, Ontario

51) Willow Flycatcher

(This one was possibly the only flycathcher I've ever identified at night - it was singing, at about 10 p.m., in along Laurel Creek just north of U of W!)

223 acadian flycatcher
224 olive-sided flycatcher
Both state lifers. I think 224 is a lifer, at least since I knew what I was doing birding.

176. Common Tern
177. Cuckoo

Migration is now basically over and new birds are hard to find. However, today I managed to find two long-overdue flycatchers that I should have seen before now.

188. Great Crested Flycatcher
189. Alder Flycatcher

Today at the Zwillbrocker Venn on the German/Dutch border

188 Greater Flamingo
189 Chilean Flamingo
190 Icterine Warbler
191 Eurasian Golden Oriole
192 Lesser Whitethroat

Both types of Flamingo have chicks, but still at nest sites on the island. Not much movement away from nests. The feeding birds were close to the island.

Coming off some heavy work this past month, took a morning to pick up a local rarity that’s been cooperative:
367. White-eyed Vireo

This is my unofficial (i.e. not ABA strict) 300th Los Angeles County bird!

This evening I had a completely unexpected bird fly low over my yard.

190. American Bittern

Bitterns are very scarce and seldom seen in this part of the state, so to have one fly over my yard, which isn't near any ponds or marshes, was quite a shock.

I've seen one bittern here in 2 years and maybe heard a second. Hard to see anywhere but I know a few patient photographers find them in NE. Even fewer least bitterns.

227 green heron
I have not seen many for two years, but this one was clearly a different profile flying than the common great blue heron. I only have 5 green herons for 2.5 years.

An impromptu family camping trip to Sequoia yielded a few nice birds:
384. California Condor (lifer)
385. Red-breasted Nuthatch
386. Red-breasted Sapsucker
387. Hermit Warbler (lifer)
388. Golden-crowned Kinglet

EDIT 6/25: Realized I left off nuthatch (added now); also was waiting on some feedback regarding a startling observation of what is now confirmed to be 2 California Condors in an area they haven't been reported (in eBird anyway) for almost 50 years near Sequoia. Pretty amazing way to get this lifer!!
