Catching Up on the Blog

Last Thursday I headed out to Palmetto in hopes of seeing new arrivals. I was not disappointed. Less than a mile from my house I spotted these two Blue Grosbeaks. I had six for the day.On Farm Road 166, I spotted the returning Dickcissel on the barbed wire, diving in and out of the grasses. I was also fortunate to see some good shorebirds along the road there, including this
American Golden Plover.
Included in the birds on the mudflat were American Pipits, Semipalmated Sandpipers, Pectoral Sandpipers, and both species of Yellowlegs.

Hey Greg, I enjoyed looking around your site and all the pictures of your birds. Actually we don't live to far apart - I'm just up the state from you around the Kansas City area. Thanks for sharing the wonderful pictures.

Jeff and Kathy,
Thanks for dropping by. Glad you enjoy!
Almost headed to your neck of the woods for the Smithville Lake Mew Gull, but didn't make it in time!
