BVAS Bird Count August

Saturday was the monthly Buena Vista Lagoon bird count. We saw a total of 51 species between everyone, although not a ton of each species. There were a ton of new people at the group today, which is always exciting.

The most exciting bird was a Red-necked Phalarope. We saw about seven of them swimming around in circles, but they were so far away we had to the use the scope to see them really at all. I had to use the entire 60x plus digital zoom to get these shots and they had to be cropped down a lot. Still, it was a new bird for me, so that was awesome. Hopefully, I’ll get to see them more up close in the future.
