Birding (and more) in Calhoun County and beyond
Quick post today as it is almost game-time. Was just about to leave Homer WTP when several large flocks of geese flew in. Mixed in there were some extremely strange calls I've not heard before. I decided I better go ahead and scan through them just to check. As I looked through them I ran across a small group of Greater White-fronted Geese mixed right in!!! #12 off my list, and a bird I last had in late December of 2014. Thought for sure I would be freezing trying to find more. Stopped at Whitehouse after I received an alert on Marsh Wren. I think this is my newest nemesis bird. 2nd time I have dipped on this bird this year. Made my way to Duck Lake and found 7 Surf Scoters I tried to make in to White-winged. One day we will get some White-winged for this county. The Scoters made it 100 birds for October, well above my previous high.
My exploits in my latest passion, Birding...not Bird-watching;-)
