I made it to Laurence Lake Reservoir where I recorded birds 27 years ago. I had an excellent morning recording 16 males. I was finally lucky enough to get some video of Eurasian Collared Doves that were introduced to the US in Florida in the 1980s. They have spread rapidly across the US, especially the western states (and they like to have sex – see below)
I also completed the Sapsucker Sweep. I saw a Williamson’s Sapsucker female that completes my North American sweep of all sapsuckers on this trip: Yellow-bellied, Red-naped. Red-breasted and Williamson's.
