Birding this weekend - CARW!
I spent most of this weekend out birding or sleeping instead of working on school projects (as I probably should have been...). The highlight by far was a Carolina Wren just across the river in the other Sault. We got good looks and heard it singing. A nice bonus - #266 for my SSM list. Other than that, I added Red-throated Loon, White-winged Scoter, and American Golden-Plover at WPBO today, bringing me up to 220 for the Sault this year...only 19 more to go to beat last year :P. Some other nice birds were 15 species of warblers including Blackpoll, Wilson's, Orange-crowned and Parula, Black-backed Woodpecker, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, and Peregrine Falcon among a total of 95 species for the weekend.
