Birding (and more) in Calhoun County and beyond
My 5MR got a couple of nice boosts since the last update. Northern Pintail became my 144th yard bird. 2 females/juveniles were out in the backwater feeding. The kicker ended up being a pair of White-winged Scoters on Beadle Lake on November 10th. Still here 4 days later, while giving much better looks than the Duck Lake pair. After hitting this county so hard for 6 years and finally getting these birds this year, I've now seen at least 4, and probably 5 within the past few weeks. 2 of them practically in my backyard. A Northern Harrier flyover on the 10th pushed the year Yard list to 115.
Other highlights in the past couple of weeks:
