Greetings All: I spent close to seven hours scouring Lynn County yesterday, found an exciting new wetlands (new to me, anyway) and surprisingly few birds.
Highlights included 2 Greater White-fronted Geese in O'Donnell, 4 Canvasbacks at Skeen Playa, 14 Least Sandpipers at Frog (or Frost, if you prefer) Lake, 1 Greater Yellowlegs at Frog (Frost) Lake, 1 Black-crowned Night Heron at the Tahoka Cemetery Complex, and 1 Sage Thrasher at the County Road EE Wetlands.
I am hoping that things will pick up in Lynn County when/if more rains arrive and things start greening up. It is looking to be a much harder nut to crack than was Hockley County.
