White-breasted Nuthatch movement
Have been seeing White-breasted Nuthatches EVERYWHERE recently...
Not expected... (including places like Point Pelee - where I saw 5 at the tip TOGETHER recently)
Didn't bother to do a quick search of eBird, but I assume one would fimd several other "new" or "high count" style records - wherever they aren't expected - in the last month or so....
(insert your ebird checklists you found here)
So - keep your eyes peeled for WBNU!! Perhaps this is a good time to look for other unlikely-irruptive species too? (Who knows?)
Rare bird weather is slowing down a bit (see the previous post before the titmouse post) --- sooner or later a dynamite bird is going to be found somewhere OTHER than Chippewa County in the UP of Michigan...
Will it be you?
