World Series of Birding 2011

Yesterday was World Series Day here in NJ; a slow migrant day, but we did find some sweet birds. Two special species are pictured here... anyone care to venture a guess at them?

We ended with 116 species for the day, far from last year's best of 143, but not so bad!

gull-billed tern and a bonapart's gull ...

Oh, wow! I didn't know you competed in this. I have been following the Cornell U teams.

Wait! Is one of your special birds a GULL?

:-)

Rabbit's Guy: You're really close with the Bonapart's guess...

ThreeCollie: Yep... every year for the past 13...

MevetS: Not properly one of my special birds, but those others'

; )

I'm guessing the not-Bonaparte's is a Laughing Gull?

No Delia, sorry!
