Hudsonian Godwit on the South Carolina coast. This was the first and last I've seen of this species here. It was the only one among a group of Willet.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Saw this Eurasian widgeon male at Dawson Creek Park in Hillsboro, OR. It is not super rare but kinda unusual.

Red-flanked Bluetail (female) showed up this winter in Lewiston, Idaho. This was the first ever for Idaho and very few have ever been seen in Lower 48.

The birding world was agog with excitement a couple of months ago when a common scoter showed up on the Oregon coast. It is a Code 4 ABA rarity, so birders from all over made the pilgrimage to Lincoln City to see it. My son and I were lucky enough to make it there as well to get a glimpse of this Siberian duck. It vanished a few weeks after we saw it - not sure if it went elsewhere or got predated.

Common sight for me, but this is a great shot showing the plumage off well.

A Chukar, native to Iran/Pakistan region and introduced to the Rocky Mountains of the U.S. This one was in my backyard, Long Island, NY. I can't discount the possibility it is a local domestic bird, but I have never seen any others. No leg band.
