First day out birding

I took a quick trip to Kelly Island here in Missoula today. Considering I've been stuck up on a small piece of land in Alaska all summer, I was able to add quite a few new year birds in just a couple of hours. It's a beautiful little piece of land right on the western edge of town.

The highlights for me were Lewis's Woodpecker and MacGillivray's Warbler; both lifers for me as I've spent very little time in the Western US.

Other new year birds for me were Grey Catbird, American Redstart, and American Goldfinch.
