FOY Osprey yard bird - one just flew nearby by my yard (giles st in Ithaca)
going towards Six Mile Creek. Saw others at Salt Point and Myer's earlier, and
a couple around the Ithaca area in recent days, but this is the first time this
year I've seen the one (more than one?) that frequents my neighborhood.
Gray Catbird made a noisy return to my backyard today, enjoying the birdbath.
Yellow-rumped warbler at Salt Point in lansing. Indigo Bunting female on wire,
also at Salt Point - drab brown bird, with pale throat and bunting bill -
didn't recognize it at first, but fit the descriptions of drabbest bird (but
beautiful in its own way!)
OOB - well, way, way out of basin, but a couple of weeks ago I was at the Grand
Canyon, and saw a California Condor as Steve and I hiked up the Bright Angel
Trail :-). Very close in, tagged on both wings, but I couldn't read the tags.
Soared nearby for a couple of minutes. Of course, my camera was in my pack,
but I savored the sight with my binoculars. Snapped a couple of pictures with
the phone before it disappeared into the distance. Definitely a lifer.
