About my peep that I stuck my neck out and ID’ed as Baird’s, I have been chasing it for the last two days hoping for a closer study. No luck there.
On Saturday when I arrived at Marker 4, Bill Elrick and * Jimmy * were glued to their scopes already. My first time hearing Jim’s name was from Mike Britt. Humongous knowledge in bird ID from what I heard in the past. I almost experienced a stage fright birding/standing next to these two expert birders to the point I could not ID a pigeon or a seagull.
I would like to believe *bird-god* has brought me Bill Elrick to Brig so I could bug Bill instead of asking so many questions to Howard when I used to run into him along the dike drive or at the parking lot.
