2015 Review

Thursday December 31st

Had an enjoyable year of birding. Traveled from one end of Florida to the other, and added birding trips that took me to the Rio Grande Valley, the Outer Banks of North Carolina and the shore lines of southeastern Virginia.

Variegated Flycatcher, an ABA Code 5 bird
 Lots of Lifers seen on these trips plus a few seen in my home state. These included American Flamingo, Variegated Flycatcher, a Mountain Bluebird, Thayers Gull, Golden-winged Warbler, Western Spindalis and Smooth-billed Ani.


Dipped on a few birds I should have seen like Mississippi Kite, Blue Grosbeak, Veery, Purple Sandpiper, White-collared Seedeater, Vesper Sparrow and Lark Sparrow.
