dee ee,

Any photos of the vireo? It was interesting to see that Blackpoll Warbler is about as rare in the spring as is Philadelphia Vireo according to eBird. It's also good that nobody reported a Warbling Vireo there instead.

Tony, I know, I was dreading that! When I laid out my selection of 4 bird books and iBird. There is some variation between them. Sibley and iBird show the Warbling with a stronger eye line than the others. But judging by Peterson and Nat. Geo. there is no doubt in my mind. Crossley is somewhere in between.

I was really glad to see it again yesterday with Sharon as another witness. She got really good looks too, and spotted it first (she's a good birder). We first saw it in the same area where you and I did. Then an hour later we saw it again a little ways away. We didn't hear it calling this time.

I tried again and again for a photo but couldn't get him in the view finder. The background had no good reference points.

We ran into another birder that I see all the time (I forgot his name) and alerted him. I hope he saw it. He said no one else has seen the Blackpoll as well.

I'm feeling quite good about our id. Good enough to ink the list.

Cyndie, I like that Black Bellied Plover. I saw 3 heading north a few weeks ago.

Here are a couple from HBCP yesterday. The House Wrens were abundant. We saw 4 foraging together (in the alleged Blackpoll area) and they were calling from every direction.
