Subject: [texbirds] Highlights from Lynn County - Sunday
Greetings All:
This past Sunday, I spent a big chunk of the day exploring the eastern half
of Lynn County, awestruck by the unseasonably warm temperatures and
enjoying flowers, butterflies, and quite a few birds.

Highlights included 2 Greater White-fronted Geese in O'Donnell, 4
Canvasbacks at Redhead Playa, 5 Canvasbacks at Skeen Playa, 6 Redheads at
Redhead Playa, 3 Eared Grebes at Redhead Playa, 2 Eared Grebes at Skeen
Playa, 3 Greater Yellowlegs just south of Tahoka, 1 Golden-fronted
Woodpecker (hard to find atop the caprock escarpment) in Grassland, 1 Say's
Phoebe in Grassland, 2 Common Ravens just east of O'Donnell, and 7 American
Pipits in Grassland.

Some incidental highlights in Lubbock included: 4 Wood Ducks at Leroy
Elmore Park, 1 Great Egret at Ashe Avenue Playa, 1 Snowy Egret at Leroy
Elmore Park, and 1 Osprey at Ashe Avenue Playa.
