We recorded 70 species from our yard from Friday through Sunday. The unquestionable highlight was the Neotropic Cormorant (still present as of this morning), the 260th species seen from our yard. There was a nice movement of raptors on Friday that included 3 Ospreys and 4 Broad-winged Hawks. Other highlights included a Sora calling all 3 days from the small cattail patch just to the east of us, 3 shorebird species (there is absolutely NO shorebird habitat at the east end of the lake), and our FOY Red-eyed Vireo on Friday, Warbling Vireo on Sunday, and Orange-crowned and Yellow Warblers on Friday.
