One new bird this morning. I heard two other potential new species but was unable to see them, so they won’t be on my Year List until I eventually do see them.

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.

The weather has been much cooler than normal for the last week or so, so migration has been relatively slow. This morning I was only able to find one new species.

281. Palm Warbler

A few warblers slowly showing up. We don't get that many. I'm still missing Chestnut Sided for the county, but not for the state.
