Great! lol. Love the adds ... I feel like I've been short on contributions through the summer. It's been tough trying to see the new birds I want to see. Today I was MTB'ing and saw a whole group of White-breasted and Pygmy Nuthatches, Mountain and Black-capped Chickadees ... but just no new ones lately.

I hope fall brings you many goodies. :mrgreen:

Here are a couple from this week in Delta, a Curlew Sandpiper:

I can finally add one! A Golden-crowned Kinglet. I don't see it on the list yet so I'm going for it.
As usual I went to great lengths to get this picture...I had to put down my coffee, pick up the camera and then get her in frame and focus before pressing the shutter all the way down :lol:.
The pictures that have been added recently are simply outstanding. Nice work Zach on all of your shorebirds, some of them are quite rare. Congratulations!

Nice ones Judy and Marilyn!

I've seen a few new birds this past week as the fall rush has started coming in.

Yesterday we had an Ash-throated Flycatcher in Delta:

There are also some Buff-breasted Sandpipers around:

And a couple of Spizella sparrows, the Brewer's and the Clay-colored:

Image

And last (and least, because it's a lousy photo), a Horned Lark:

lol. Great work Zach, Judy and Marilyn on adding to the list ... I haven't been able to get out on any birding trips for the last 3 weeks ... planning a trip on Saturday to White Lake Basin ... I hope to see a few "migrators" still ...
