Some famous (and famously questionable) personalities have also visited in the past, names like Christopher Columbus and Donald Trump come to mind. I nearly dropped my lunch for what I thought was a Mouse-colored Tyrannulet , but it turned out to be a juvenile Northern Scrub Flycatcher.

Christopher Columbus Park. Mouse-colored Tyrannulet – Phaeomyias murina. So that was May. Despite looking way older than his years, we cannot attribute Regannet’s haggard appearance to hard birding, scoring only 19 during eBird’s Big Day was not the greatest effort expended on May 4th. In fairness, he had to celebrate Star Wars Day with his teenage son as this is their only means of effective conversation.

Collaborative list – April 2019

It’s official. It’s spring. By all measures, meteorological, astronomical and anatomical, spring is sprung. The meteorological date is from March 1st, the Vernal Equinox was passed on March 20th which accounts for the astronomical marker when the sun crosses the equator on its northwards ramble. April is now behind us and Old Tom’s arthritis is clearing up nicely, thank you very much for asking. The migrants are coming (Hurray!). Some are already here, or passing through.

Are we all getting excited yet? March is done. The equinox has passed. There can be no denying that spring is coming and with it, the summer visitors and passage migrants. Oh, joy! 9 countries were visited during March by your tireless beats ( 11 of them); India, UK, USA, Serbia, Costa Rica, Japan, Australia, Singapore and Malaysia. With so much thrashing around in SE Asia, it is interesting to compare east and west hemispheres.
