Not the best morning for birding. Cold front pushing through brought rain, winds, and dropping temps. Out at sunrise chasing a Harris's Sparrow (Rarity) till 10 a.m.. About 30 min after we left a fellow birder called to say the bird finally popped up for a good look. Aggghh. Well at least only a hour drive away from house so will try again another day. Still a few birds to be found along with these for the new year.

81 Bald Eagle
82 Yellow-bellied Sapsucker
83 Common Yellowthroat
84 White-crowned Sparrow
85 Vesper Sparrow
86 House Finch
87 Blue-headed Vireo
88 Gadwall
89 Mallard
90 Northern Harrier
91 Peregrine Falcon

Cheers

108 Glossy Ibis County rare bird

Great day..........left the house at 5 am to drive south to Ft Myers. Arrive at 7 am to find a new state bird. Brandt. On to Harns Marsh for target birds of Grey Swamphen and Snail Kite. Found both. We were running earlier than expect so drove back north an hour to Babcock Webb WMA. Scored 3 of target birds Bachman sparrow, Brown Headed Nuthatch, and Red-cockaded Woodpecker. Despite searching no luck on Hairy Woodpecker. Off to next stop on way home. Palmer Lake and Celery Fields. Palmer Lake we found several species of shorebirds and scored a Crested CaraCara. Back over to Celery Field but whiffed on the Bronzed Cowbird. Think we were to late in day as it was getting hot. All in all great fun with a couple of friends. Heres my up to date list.

Well our hoped for fallout did not occur this week. Migrants were few and took some work to find the few I did. No storms next week so not expecting much

The weather has been wonderful. Actually to nice. A few migrants continue to trickle in but no fallout conditions expected within the next 7 Days. Yesterday was spent at Ft DeSoto Park in Pinellas County. My first Good Friday off from school - ever. Some new birds arrived late this week but are quickly moving on as the north winds shifted to the east. The east winds did bring us Blackpol and Cape May Warblers. The Male Cape May's are always so stunning this time of year. FOS Gray Kingbird showed up in the park and greeting me at sunrise calling across the Fort parking lot. They will stay and breed in park over summer. Love to her any of the Kingbirds.

My additions from yesterday. Will be back out this morning to see if anything new shows up

Weekend migration slowed to a halt. Was still good to see some birds still hanging around yesterday. Had a few this morning. Seems to be the year for Worm-Eating Warblers. Had 3 more today and 2 yesterday. Finally got my Short Tailed Hawk. Looks like they are back on nest at Sawgrass Lake park. No confirmation yet if Swallow-tailed Kits are nesting again this year. Kites are in park but no nest found.

A few from the past couple of days

Big winds, little rain, and only a few migrants dropping in. But at least some good ones today. Ran out to park after work so only had a short time

Added a few birds yesterday. Saw more Magnolia Warblers on saturday than i think i have seen in the past five years. Stopped counting at 10. All males, and was unable to get pic's of any because they were in the heavy mangroves in several areas. Still a fun day. Took my wife to breakfast than for a walk at local preserve. Wonderful morning, 63 deg F and no humidity. Even managed to add a year bird too.

Migration is coming to a close and we begin the "lean" times in our area. Shorebirds that go north to breed will be leaving soon. Migrants will be few and far between if any at all. Temp's already heading up into the mid 90's F so summer is almost here.

Been having to travel to find new year birds. Did a six hour round trip over to West Palm Beach area to locate the Least Grebe that has been hanging out for a few months now. Always amazing how these birds end up on such a small pond. Florida rare bird that apparently breed at this location a few years ago. So just a few to add for now.

quick trip an hours south to Sarasota this morning. First to Siesta Key for Snowy Plovers. They breed in area. 6 located this morning feeding on beach. Gotta love Snowy's even when it's overcast and rainy. From there up to Saint Armand's Circle. Tropical Kingbird has returned for what must be fourth or fifth year to breed in parking area. Rare bird for Florida this time of year
