    Last 3 ticks whats yours?

    I wasn’t even aware of that! Thanks for letting me know. I’m not really doing anything like a big year. I’m just birding here at home, and in addition to my last trip I’ll be doing one more later in the year. When you go to an exotic new country, the bird numbers just seem to add up. Dave

    Iberian Chiffchaff dilemma

    I’m not sure I’d trust Merlin. I don’t use it myself but I know several people who have had questionable birds “identified”. As an example, a beginning birder I know had Merlin tell her there were Evening Grosbeaks and an American Goshawk in her yard at the same time. This was in West Virginia...

    Day four in Paraguay. Not many new birds today as the morning was taken up by driving farther to the east, almost to the Brazilian border. Now in the Atlantic forest which will provide different birds than the areas I had been earlier. I did get some birding in during the afternoon and evening...
