It's very slow down here in southeast Texas.

A trip to Austin brought one very unexpected new bird:
267. Red Phalarope.

Goodness only knows what this bird is doing in the Texas hill country! It's certainly causing a lot of excitement among birders, though.

It certainly surprised me, Larry. Like a female Pyrrhuloxia that turned up near where I work a few winters ago. However, she's been back every winter since, whereas I expect the Phalarope will never reappear here.

Well sorry, I'm not keeping up very consistently here. Our latest rarity, a Western Sandpiper, had all the Tokyo photographers out, and brought my Japan year list to 203 at the end of September.

Good bird

Got another species this morning:
268. Vermilion Flycatcher.

It's out of its range here but this is the 7th year an adult male has appeared on a local golf course.

I'm never going to reach 300 birds in the USA this year but I'm hoping for 200 in Texas. (I'm at 193.) My world total should be my best yet, though, as I'm having 10 days in Barcelona soon and then a day and a half in Costa Rica at the end of November.

Pulling Teeth

Seeing new year birds is like pulling teeth at present!

#269. Sedge Wren (at work yesterday)

I fly to Barcelona on Thursday for 10 days, including a weekend at the Ebro Delta. Should see at least some new year birds and maybe some lifers there.

At the end of November I'll have a day and a half in Costa Rica and I'm hoping it will be productive! Pity I won't have more time there.
