On Sunday, I finished off the Circle BBS in Lamb County. With ongoing drought, heat, and wind there was not much in the way of highlights but ...
On the way out I noted a Common Poorwill along FM 1072 just north of Fieldton. This is fairly close to a quarrying operation - which may be just enough of the right habitat.
Along the route itself I had 1 Ring-necked Pheasant in Earth, 1 Ring-necked Pheasant southeast of Springlake, 7 Cattle Egrets northwest of Earth, 2 Say's Phoebes northwest of Earth, 2 Say's Phoebes west-northwest of Earth, and 1 female and 1 male Bronzed Cowbird southwest of Springlake.
On the way back through Lamb County I noted 2 Inca Doves in Littlefield, 2 Yellow-billed Cuckoos at Lamb County Sandhills Historical Marker (LCSHM), 4 Cattle Egrets at LCSHM, 2 Cattle Egrets in Littlefield, 1 Cattle Egret in Springlake, and 1 Bell's Vireo at LCSHM.
