It wasn’t the best view but I saw number 500 today just before forced to head to the airport for Attu Island and the epic journey! The elusive Cerulean warbler was spotted at Avatan….
I wished I had a picture, but alas, no and the best part of it, my son Seth, was there to see the blue of the bird!
How cool is that!!

Orchard Oriole in back yard!
I edge up so closely to 500 I can almost taste it, Attu is upon me and I dont think I’ll make it to 500 before departure.
