Sullivan County Break 100 Day

IMG_6333 (2)

This beautiful GRAY-CHEEKED THRUSH was the first of the year for all of us!

I spent the day scouting the Bashakill  in preparation for the county “Big Day”.  I had a great day, tallying 79 species, all within the Bashakill.  This afternoon, at 5 pm, Karen Miller, Lance Verderame and I started our “Big Day”.  We had planned on doing it all day Saturday, but with a forecast of rain for most of the day tomorrow, we decided to go from 5 pm to 5 pm instead.  We thought that having this evening would give us a chance to pick up many birds that we might not be able to see if indeed, there is pouring rain. It remains to be seen how it will work out.  For now at least, we had a good evening of birding.  The only disappointment was that we were unable to find any Whip-poor-will for our count.  We ended our evening at 9 pm, after four hours of birding, with a total or 64 species.  Not bad for one evening.  Hopefully, tomorrow will not be a wash out and we will pick up lots of great birds!  I’ll keep you posted!
