Pics (top to bottom) Lincoln's Sparrow, Northern Flicker, American Black Tern, Double-crested Cormorant, Simon and David, Bosse Carlsson (Birding Azores pioneer), Vincent and David and Corvo Birders.
It's not over yet on the Azores. Vincent is still on Corvo for another week and is being joined by Richard Bonser and a westerly airflow, while other birders are still scattered across the other islands. However it is more or less over for me. Highlights for me this year were the WPs first Lincoln's Sparrow and finally getting to see the Northern Flicker. Supporting cast included Rough-legged 'Hawk', Cedar Waxwing, Northern Waterthrush, Yellow-billed Cuckoo, Buff-breasted Sandpiper, American Black Tern, Double-crested Cormorant, Baltimore Oriole, Indigo Bunting, Common Yellowthroat, Wilson's Snipe and from Europe; Lapwing and Garden Warbler.
