One would think that after spending three long days in the heat out for this past weekend working on the VSO Atlas Project that I would stay home today and rest.
Wrong went to Chapel Hill and saw YCNH with chicks in nest in the front yard of a very nice lady. This is the third year for them nesting there. A NC Lifer for eBird for me although I have seen them in NC before but it wasn’t a Lifer so didn't record the date
Then I went to Raleigh where Susan Campell had reported a MIKI yesterday stayed almost an hour no kite. Then went to another location only 13 minutes away at Crabtree Creek that had a kite reported yesterday, my first time there and it is really a great place to bird only wish I lived closer. So I missed the kites at both locations but saw one of the two Roseate Spoonbills.
Saw a ROSP last year in Orange County NC now this was for Wake County.
Got to cut grass tomorrow no matter what.
Good Birding Always
