I’ve asked one or two other Howard birders and they agreed that LAWAs have been very down this year. From my perspective they’ve been drastically down - almost absent - and that’s concerning.

My NORTHERN Waterthrush (six records at 3 different sites in county) observations have outnumbered Lousiana (one each at 2 sites) in Montgomery so far, which is unusual form me.
Good Birding!
