I'm surprised that heron stayed there almost a week, there are just tons of walkers and fishermen and even kayakers there at the middle of the city lake. There are plenty of quiet ponds in the county.

Today I drove over to the Ohio River Valley to chase a potential state lifer. I quickly found my target, as well as four other additions to my West Virginia Year List, all birds I saw last March in Mexico.

278. Franklin’s Gull

The gull was my 288th species for West Virginia and my third state lifer of the year.

It never stopped raining all morning, but during some periods of light drizzle I was able to pick up a couple of new birds for the year.

279. Dunlin
280. Northern Parula

The Dunlin is quite scarce in my area and is a bird I could easily miss, so I was happy and relieved to see it.
