That happened to me as well. It took a few years to actually see my first Red-eyed Vireo in 2019, now I can't escape them. Same with Eastern Wood-peweeRed-eyed vireo. Actually, the first vireo I've ever seen. I've been birding for a couple of years, but I've just never seen one before.
Excellent. Seems like a lot of Buff-breasted moving through MN too right now.At long last, finally nabbed a trio of Buff-breasted Sandpipers at the sod farm across from the Lost Creek Wetland Area, up near Stevens Point Wisconsin.
This was the last "regularly occurring" potential lifer local to me, and also one of only 3 remaining regularly breeding shorebirds I needed for the ABA (Still need Purple Sandpiper and Bristle-thighed Curlew, but it's going to be awhile for at least the latter). Also got some bonus Baird's Sandpiper for my state list!
