Wilds Birding Bonanza

Great birds at The Wilds on our scouting trip this afternoon, including long-tailed duck (formerly known as oldsquaw), snow bunting, and northern shrike. Excuse my poor photography, but they are for documentation purposes only.

The duck was found by area birding honcho Jason Larson. The shrike and bunting were by Jimbo McCormac, who was positively en fuego today. Thanks to Jen for driving and to Hugh for conjuring the buntings ("Hey, you guys ever get any snow buntings around here? LOOK! SNOW BUNTING!") And to Wendy Wharff for letting us in from the cold.

More soon!
