After birding at Montrose this morning, I was entering my eBird data into my phone with my windows open, when I distinctly heard 2 Pee-za! bursts, the 2nd one followed by the Acadian-like twitter. This sounded so much like what I remembered on the Sibley app, that I looked around to see if anyone was playing the tape (not sure why anyone would be taping an Acadian in September).
I am not entering or counting this bird, as I wanted to hear it once more ands possibly get a recording of it. That didn't happen. I'm also aware that this isn't very good Acadian territory, although quite possible during migration. But vocalizing in September? Maybe someone can help me out with that.
Anyway, keep your ears open this weekend if you're there....
Craig T, Alex B, Dave A and I also had 2 Nelson's Sparrows in the dunes, first spotted by Dave.
