Trip List - Ithaca locations

Boy, with everything that's been going on I'm way behind. I already wrote about the highlights of the recent Spring Field Ornithology trip I lead (with Jay McGowan), and now I'm finally posting the cumulative trip list. I will do this with all my birding trips, and I'll try to be better about the timing!

I highlighted my "first of the year" birds in bold. You can tell a couple of things: I haven't birded much outside of my immediate area, and some birds are slowly arriving. So birds like Carolina Wren that do occur around here, just not on our hill, were new due to the former, and birds like Yellow-bellied Sapsucker and Ruby-crowned Kinglet were new due to the latter.

More about this trip was posted earlier.

More to come -- I lead another trip this weekend and I'm hoping for a good show of newly arrived migrants.
