Well, here I am... officially in a rut aching for a few minutes to bird! Last weekend I was able to get out for about 2 hours - just enough time to want more. I thought I had my first Least Sandpiper (6 actually) but didn't claim them because I just wasn't sure! I had the scope on 60x and still couldn't feel 100%... maybe next time.
The birding forecast for this weekend is grim as well. However, if I can find an hour or two, rest assured I will be looking up toward the sky hoping to see some sort of feathered life!
