Fantastic additions, some beautiful species there.  So it looks like you have hummingbirds in your garden, so jealous :)

Yes, I have 2 resident breeding males and at least 3 females that rotate around all the time. Hopefully, we'll have a good migration this fall and maybe some rare visitors!

133) Dunlin - 3 May 

 

Things are getting dicey this round of posts. 

 

Very much an EBC photo for this Dunlin, but I've never seen them any closer to the walking paths, unfortunately. The black belly patch, droopy bill,  and squat dumpy posture give it away.

134) Lesser Yellowlegs - 3 May

 

Another bin-worthy photo, but here's a Lesser Yellowlegs! Bill size being approximately equal to the size of the head is the major giveaway between Greater and Lesser.

137) Pacific Golden-Plover - 3 May

 

I know this photo doesn't look like much, but it was such a rush for me. This is my first truly rare sighting that I found all on my own. Others actually tried to re-find them after I'd reported them! Such thrills.

143) Brown-headed Cowbird - 20 May 

 

Sorry for the wonky cell picture. She only dropped by this one day, and then from what I've seen has not returned.

And that makes May! Additional not pictured are: 

 

Semipalmated Plover

Brown Creeper

White-breasted Nuthatch

Swainson's Thrush

Common Yellowthroat

Forster's Tern

 

Good news is with some diligence, all of those can probably be found again in the coming weeks, and many are year-round. Total eBird through May: 174!
