With permission of the moderator. Now that the lazy days of summer are upon us I thought it would be fun for birders of all experiences to list their top 10 vagrants/accidentals or "what am I doing here" birds they have seen in Ma. Please list them in order of importance with #1 being the most unusual. I will keep a tally and when enough information has been received I will then publish the results. Also feel free to contact me directly if you prefer. Pelagic birds only count if they are seen from shore. Not everyone can handle a boat and I want this to be as fair as possible. Finally list your birding experience in the following categories: 0 -15 years ; 16 - 30 years ; over 30 years.
This is not a test so there are no wrong answers.
My top 10: Spotted Redshank Red-footed Falcon Yellow-billed Loon Great Gray Owl Brown-chested Martin Northern Lapwing McCown's Longspur Fulvous Whistling Duck Black-bellied Whistling duck Mountain Bluebird
