January 2017 has had a lot of really great birds - rare and even rarer. The Red Flanked Bluetail in Idaho, the Common Eider at Purdy, the Purple Sandpiper at Kitty Islet in B.C., the Falcated Duck at Padilla Bay, a Yellow Billed Loon in near breeding plumage at Rosario Beach, a Northern Mockingbird in Kirkland and a Swamp Sparrow at the Center for Wooden Boats on South Lake Union. I have seen them all and been lucky to get photos. I have not been alone. There Sure Are Lots of Birders Out There. As I recount in my most recent blog post, hundreds of birders have seen these welcomed visitors and have filed hundreds of reports on Ebird and elsewhere. I wonder what will show up next... Includes some photos of the Swamp Sparrow from this afternoon and the Northern Mockingbird from Tuesday.
