Hello tweeters,
Several of you were kind enough to give me advice on where and when on
birding here this season, so I thought I’d just post my eBird link. I do
not know how to only copy the link for this trip, so those who are
interested will have to sift through previous postings.
We got here May 5. May 6 the weather was really bad. And the next day
there were very few birds. They didn’t start arriving until the following
Tuesday and then it was a flood. I think next time I come, I’ll shoot for
a May 7th arrival.
Kirtlands was of course the highlight for most of us as there were
numerous sightings. I stood with a group of about 100, as the Kirtlands was
totally indifferent to our presence. I did get photos, but the lighting was
not the best, and I discovered AFTER that my meter was set incorrectly for
what I was doing. ( all those unintended bumps of you camera and button
touching messed up most of my photos for the week, but that’s wasn’t my
goal anyway.
I did not focus on gulls or terms, as I was working with a new birder and I
needed to focus on what was relevant to her learning experience. And it
did pay off. Every night we went over what was seen and heard and how we
decided what it was.
Anyway! Below is my eBird link.
Happy birding to you all!
