Not had a new bird since the 3rd! Due to the fact that I had an excellent start to the year in the first couple of days, followed by new lockdown rules in the UK, followed by me returning to Hungary where I've been quarantining in my small flat which doesn't have much of a view.

Anyway. Today I saw something that was not only a year tick, but something that is not a Rook!

88. Hooded Crow

7 more days to go...

I feel for you mate. I suppose you now have the time to finish doing whatever new folders for 2021 you need, or catching up on backlogs of existing unsorted photos if you are anything like me! We normally holiday with a 3rd person and all three take huge numbers of photographs of any and every lifeform that I then try to ID. I was given books about wild flowers and one about grasses, sedges, rushes and ferns for Christmas which will also keep me occupied during lockdown.

Two new birds this morning.

55. Ruby-crowned Kinglet
56. American Kestrel

The kinglet is over-wintering and shouldn’t even be here this time of year, although it’s an abundant spring and fall migrant. And I can’t believe it took two weeks to find a kestrel.

Been rather poor with song birds, missing several regulars yet. And all the lakes are mostly frozen. Since my eBird has a hidden list due to a rare bird, I also had not made a list to store. But it turns out the order won't change, so I can start the list now.
