|This is my five mile circle. A mile or two to the southeast, and I'd have been golden.|
|Least Grebes at the Triangle have never been crushable before, and it was kind of hard to leave this spot considering.|
|This Peregrine Falcon has been reliable at the UT tower year round for the last 4 years or so.|
Okay, so I left The Haircut Store and went to the Triangle Pond mainly for Least Grebe, but also picked up a few ducks and an unexpected Sora. I fucked around a few more places before picking up my buddy AJ (and adding his resident female Rufous/Allen's) and birding the ponds at the Mueller development. Many clutch birds ensued including Cave Swallow, Marsh Wren, and Harris's Sparrow. At this point, I was sitting in the upper 50's with several easy birds to pick up. I took and vigorous and much needed nap before heading out to grab the last few stragglers, and with the exception of American Robin, I couldn't find any of them. Much shame.
|I may have lost, but FJ will be jealous of this Harris's Sparrow. Eat shit, FJ.|
