Today I made the long trip to the Ohio River which forms the western border of West Virginia. I had eight targets, birds that have been reported over the last few days and which are hard to find in my part of the state. I found six of the eight targets, which is pretty good odds. In addition, I found one bird (egret) which shouldn't be here at this time of the year.

84. Double-crested Cormorant
85. Canvasback
86. Herring Gull
87. Long-tailed Duck
88. Surf Scoter
89. Mute Swan
90. Great Egret

My 2017 list is a bit behind last years list. At February 06, 2016 I tallied 62 species which included one lifer, a Great Kiskadee (Pitangus sulphuratus) compared with 58 and no lifers in 2017. I also decided last week to do a photographic big year for Barbados. Check out both list here and here of big year

Rather late getting on the train here, I just decided that I'd better start another "running total" list to encourage myself to get out on the trails more.

Yesterday (Sunday, Feb. 05) I went running down to Victoria park, in the middle of my home town of Kitchener, Ontario. It seemed like it was going to be a very blah birding excursion at first (saw about 68 Mallards, and that was all, in the park). But I on the way home, I came across a tree full of American Robins - started counting them, got to about 30 - and then saw another tree with a few in it, and then another! All told, there must have been 50 robins at a minimum, but I suspect I was being very conservative.

A few robins in S. Ontario in winter are not at all unusual, but large flocks on downtown trails are! I think they must be running out of grapes and other wild fruit in the forests, and are roaming around town now, just looking for anything at all to eat.

Sunday, Feb. 05:

1) Mallard
2) Black-capped Chickadee
3) House Sparrow
4) Mourning Dove
5) American Robin
6) American Crow

Today I drove ten hours round-trip to eastern Pennsylvania to chase a report of a Black-backed Oriole which has been coming to a feeder. The species is a Mexican endemic and represents a potential first record for the ABA Area (pending acceptance by the Pennsylvania checklist committee and then the ABA checklist committee). I saw my target almost as soon as I arrived on the scene. Since I've never birded Mexico, it was obviously a lifer.

92. Black-backed Oriole
