I've pretty much fallen off the birding wagon this week. I've done just the minimum to get my Bird RDA driving to work most days, and taken a couple walks at work, but haven't updated my BIGBY list or submitted anything to eBird. I've picked up Eastern Wood-Pewee (at work) and Willow Flycatcher (on my walk this morning) as new BIGBY birds, and a couple other new county year birds, but I've just been kind of tired and not in a really birdy mood. This morning I just went down to the creek and sat for awhile--a badly needed mental health break. A kingfisher flew by, and that's where I heard the Willow Flycatcher. I'm sure I got my 20 species Bird RDA, but I haven't gone to eBird yet to do the tally.
Maybe I'll do that now. Or maybe I'll just take a nap!
