I birded Crawford County for IMBD/Global today. 98 miles in just shy of 10 hours. Had an incredible day. Best bird was probably the Least Bittern calling on Sharp Chapel Road. But, when I get my favorite warbler, Chestnut-sided, I am extremely happy. Was starting to worry this year. 17 warbler species day. It's a shame we got so much water too late. Lots of nice mud in the Van Buren Bottoms. I found one Avocet, one Semipal Plover, a handful of White-rumpeds, Leasts, and Pectorals, and at least 12 Spotteds. Wiffed on Lark Sparrow, Bald Eagle, and a couple other things. The AR river is extremely high so no terns or gulls. My count is on Ebird. I'm plum tired.
