No matter how crazy the times, birds are always there – with unexpected lessons, reminders, and yes, lifers.
Where and how I managed to add a highly specialized, endangered woodpecker to my life list – and you can too.
My latest lifer, how long it took to add to my list, and where I finally managed to see it!
A life list is a birder’s testament to the birds they’ve seen, but how should birds be added? I’ve got a wide range of birds on my life list that should not be there at all.
The second unexpected warbler to visit my yard in the last few weeks, how I identified it, and why it can be so confusing…
The lifer that took me over a year to be positive about… And why that’s okay (and not that uncommon with warblers, actually)!
