The only flight I could get with my air miles, was from Baltimore to Miami. So I will drive down to Maryland,(there is a Tufted Duck there), and on to Miami where maybe the Western Spindalis will hang around just for me. I would also like to see a White-crowned Pigeon. On the way back I will check out some birds in New Jersey and perhaps be in the right place at the right time for a Dovekie.
There has been no sign of the Smew that visited Whitby Harbour this time last year. That would have been a great bird to end the year with, since it was the first bird I chased, last January 1. Oh well. Another year in another place perhaps.
