Your Most Recent "Life" Bird (1 Viewer)


Always finding a way to go off topic...

Quite new to the hobby, so haven't seen a ton, but my most recent lifer was a yellow-legged gull sat atop one of the buildings in my school.


United States
A visit to a local science museum back in October gave me two lifers, though the one I saw most recent would be the Red-Bellied Woodpecker. Not a huge hobbyist, but really cool find for me as it's the second time in my life I've seen a woodpecker. Though in another aspect I saw both Crested and Green Oropendolas for the first time the other day but that doesn't count as they were captive.

My first two world ticks since the controversial Paddyfield Pipit on 1st November 2019 were:-

Sulphur-bellied Warbler - Lundy, Devon, England - 8th June 2021

Varied Thursh - Papa Westray, Orkney, Scotland - 28th October 2021

Whatever happened in 2020.....?

All the best
