I was glad to see this Black-necked Stilt at the Myakka River State Park in Florida, on Monday. Upon returning home, it was as I suspected, and it was not a “lifer” for me, since it had showed up in Ohio, last year. A “lifer” for the non-birders means it is the first time you have seen that bird. I think the 16 “lifers,” I saw on vacation in Florida brings my life list up to 245 on eBird. I have around 60 species that I observed in India, that I haven’t put on eBird yet. Have a great day!
