77 Blue-winged Teal at Marsh Wren Community Wetlands US-NE 16 Mar 2020
78. Prairie Falcon at Marsh Wren Community Wetlands US-NE 16 Mar 2020
79. Western Meadowlark

The falcon I had for the state, but the reviewer never fully accepted it and the state records ignored it. This one I have a photo of. I had it a couple of years back in Wyoming, but no photo.

With everything closed down for some time, we’re self-isolating here in LA. Wishing everybody safe social distanced birding during this bizarre time. Took a walk down from our house down to the LA River for a couple year birds:
310. Violet-green Swallow
311. Pin-tailed Whydah
