World Series 2010

They were almost delirious enough around 7 pm to smile at my camera without much prodding beyond, “Time for the obligatory group photo everyone!”

😉

We’d been out for better than 12 hours at that point and had just about tallied our total for the day, save for the odd swallow and a bittern that never materialized. It was a fabulous day for birds… the kind of day where you just want to plant yourself in one spot and watch wave after wave of migrants come to you; it was that good! Sandy Hook can be spectacular under the right conditions and this year’s World Series of Birding was just such a day. We ended with a record-setting (for us) 143 species!

And to think some birders go midnight to midnight and traipse across the whole state for less.

😉

Bad bird pics to follow, shortly. Previous posts about WSB are gathered here.

  1. WOW! You saw an amazing number of birds…wonderful birding day for sure.
    I am hosting a Baltimore Oriole party in my backyard. 30 Orioles were enjoying grapes and oranges and all sorts of chatting on my deck this past weekend. In the mix were a couple of Orchard Orioles too males, females and little ones.
    The birds are the best movie in town.

    Q: Hi! It was a great day and I envy you your Orioles!

    Enjoy them!

    Steve: lol!

    There was, of course, the obligatory mid-day coffee run to DD.
