Four States, Four New Birds

Lots of travel this past week, resulting in four new birds to my ABA life list.  Last Wednesday, Nutting’s Flycatcher near Lake Havasu, Arizona (at this spot):

A break on Friday in Washington, D.C.  for a meeting with the President:

Then off to Ocean City, Maryland to see Purple Sandpipers feeding along this shore:
Had to take a photo of what real lump crab cakes look like:
Then on Sunday off to a place in the middle of Indiana to see a Hooded Crane (very rare sighting in the U.S.) - see link:
And then yesterday morning in St. Louis, a rush to see Eurasian Tree Sparrow (making it ABA # 642) before scrambling to the airport to head out before the approaching snowstorm!
What I will do for a bird!
