NORTHERN FLICKER/WILLET ??
Cedar Waxwing (Bosse Carlsson)
Believe it or not, todays identification challenge involved a bird that was either a Northern Flicker or a Willet! It was a 'heard only' that was either coming from a valley or over it- heard by a few of the team.
I had an Azores tick- House Martin.
Other birds on Corvo today include the Cedar Waxwing (seen better today), a Summer Tanager, the Rough-legged 'Hawk' is still around, an American Redstart, Baltimore Oriole, Indigo Bunting, Yellow-billed Cuckoo and Northern Waterthrush. No sign of the Lincoln's Sparrow.
