Brewer's Blackbird, Northern Wheatear, Warbling Vireo and Other Highlights

October 27, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

The Brewer's Blackbirds(2), very rare, were walking on the lawn in our back yard. I tried to get photos but lost them as they went below my line of sight. They were all black, no epulets, no rusty streaks and a square tail which was much shorter than a Common Grackle's wedged tail. The Northern Wheatear, a rare bird, was also unphotographed as it flew from distant rock top to rock top. I should have approached the barrens from the western end to meet them coming rather than watch them leaving in the direction I was trudging. Next time. I did photograph the Warbling Vireo, uncommon, but alas they were record quality photos only due the spray of branches between my camera lens and the bird.
