The promise of a lifer and a new bird for the island brought the quartet of local birders, myself included, out birding together on Saturday 18th. I cannot remember the last time we were all out birding together. While the debate continues on the identification of the bird, this excursion provided me with a “year bird”, moving my tally for the year to 62 species. It also provided me with one of the images for week 11, that of a flock of (42)Ring-necked Ducks. The other birds for week11 are (40)Bananaquit and (41)Caribbean Elaenia.
