  1. You good little eBirder you!!!

  2. All of these in a couple of days? Wow, you Are Good!

  3. Birders are great listers, aren't they? Your NY list is very impressive. Great shot of the merganser!! My trip back to MA has been delayed a few weeks due to illness in my extended family. Hopefully, I'll be able to add more to my TX trip list! ~karen

  4. gorgeous shot of the those feathers! You're so good at listing. I never seem to be able to keep track. I need to get on the ball! :-)

  5. So good to see so many. What a great post.

  6. Birding is Fun, I thought you might like to see these stats.

    Gaelyn, not ALL of these. This is my Life List for this state. I saw around 35 species for the whole trip but 22 were new for my NY Life List.

    KaHolly, so sorry about the delay. Sure hope all is well. Enjoy that warm weather while you can!

    Kelly, I use a notebook and pen to keep track or I never would be able to keep it all straight!

    Sandy, The listing is only part of the fun for me. The birds are the best but it helps me to pin the trip into my memory!

  7. Beautiful merganser photo Kathie.

  8. That Merganser photo is a beauty!


Welcome to my nest! I hope you will enjoy spending time here with me and the birds. Thank you for your comments. I will try to get back to you as soon as I get back from counting more birds.
