I must apologize for the lack of writing lately. I have been extremely busy with working and rarity chasing to the point of absolute exhaustion. Time to rest? No TIME TO DRIVE TO THE YUKON AND BACK DOWN INTO BC (HAINES TRIANGLE) NEAR THE ALASKA BORDER. Yes perhaps I am crazy, but since I just drove to Tofino and back (and didn't see that mega-bird Bristle-thighed Curlew) I figure I may as well go and get some "easy" breeders right? Enough of these unreliable things, I need a bird on territory to get me out of this slump. Oh and did I mention I drove from Golden to Vancouver for a Costa's Hummingbird, missed it, then drove back to Revelstoke to work the next morning!!! In my delirious drive home I came up with this feeble joke: (read in an Italian accent)-- "Costa's Hummingbird? More like- 'a COST-A-LOT OF a-MONEY!'" Hilarious at the time, not so much as I type.
Anyways, perhaps things are looking up as I just saw a SAGE THRASHER singing at White Lake! Finally!!! If only the Black-necked Stilts would come out of hiding in the same way.
Time to drive to Prince George though, I will give a full update in a couple weeks. Hang in there!
