I saw a new yard/county/state/ABA/lifer bird this afternoon, although getting IOU Records Committee approval could be problematic. A female Common Peafowl showed up at my feeders. It actually wasn't a big surprise, as she's been hanging out with a female Wild Turkey about 200 yards from my house for about a month. She showed up with four turkeys (two adults and two youngsters) at my place. Nobody has any idea where she came from, although I'm sure she's a natural vagrant from Sri Lanka.
