I stopped by a local pond this afternoon to see if the heavy rain brought by the remnant of a tropical storm brought anything good. Boy, did it ever! I added three birds to my Year List, including two state/county lifers (*).

297. White-rumped Sandpiper*
298. Pectoral Sandpiper
299. Buff-breasted Sandpiper*

The Buff-breasted Sandpiper was the first record for Preston County.

This evening I rushed to a local hotspot after a mega rarity was found. I got there just before dark and got my 300th species of the year.

300. Sabine’s Gull

It was a West Virginia state lifer (no. 275), my third in four days.

Friday night a cold front brought large numbers of fall migrants. Yesterday I saw four species of vireos and 14 species of wood warblers. Out of those birds, I added two species to my Year List.

303. Philadelphia Vireo
304. Orange-crowned Warbler

An then today I added another uncommon fall migrant to my list.

305. Gray-cheeked Thrush
