Today I made the nine-hour round-trip drive to north-central Ohio to chase a mega rarity that was found a week ago. Despite harsh weather conditions and considerable distance, I was finally able to spot my target and get decent looks.

406. Sharp-tailed Sandpiper

This vagrant from Siberia was a world lifer (no. 2484) and ABA Area lifer (no. 658).

How cool you were in Topanga - I moved there in 1982 from Amsterdam (The Netherlands) as a young boy and then up to Santa Barbara in 1985.

This morning I went over to the eastern panhandle of West Virginia to chase a regional rarity that was found two days ago. I easily found my target, which brings me up to 407 for the year.

407. Snow Bunting
