I'm having a great time birding in 2021. I've completed an eBird.org checklist every day this year. I've seen 54 species!
I wanted to celebrate my 50th species for the year - it was a sharp-shinned hawk - but I wasn't able to snap a photo.
My 51st was a grackle, no photo either.
I saw a raven - species #52! No photos.
Sorry. It's hard to get photos sometimes!
The same day I saw the raven, I saw canvasback ducks and greater scaups, two different kinds of diving duck.
