Phew, another grueling day birding the yard and another six pack;
Eastern Phoebe (migrating over the marsh landing briefly in a tree)
Northern Flicker (2 seen while in the neighbors yard but the 2nd did land in my tree and stayed long enough to run back across my property line (am I taking this too serious?))
Brown Creeper -- cute little fella flew past me over open lawn to land in the neighbors elm tree).
Blue-winged teal (pristine looks in the evening -- guess they really were real).
Great Black Backed Gull (admittedly, stretching the ID a bit but was really dark-backed and wings without noticeable white windows leaving me to exclaim: "good enough for my yard-list"
Wilson's Snipe (after dark -- called then winnowed)
Sorry Big Rig but from now on I'll be watching you through the rear-view mirror. Keep your sunny side up and your rubber side down.....
