This morning on the Stockton-Grand Bay-Hahira BBS route, I had my first singing Field Sparrow since I've been doing the route (15 years). It's mostly absent as a breeder in extreme SE Georgia including Lowndes Co.; I guess after today I'd say it's an "irregular breeder" in Lowndes. Extreme south-central GA is also about the only place in the state where Yellow-breasted Chat is rare as a breeder, so it was good to hear 2 of them at a new area of the route.

But the strangest thing was that we heard 4 calling Great-horned Owls at stops 4,5 and 6 (up till 6:30 am), conservatively recorded as 3 due to one possible duplicate. I rarely ever get even one GHOW. 3 Wood Storks, 3 Bachman's Sparrows at 2 stops, 2 fledgling Barred Owls and a Mississippi Kite complete the highlights. Alas, no Wood Thrush, which has been the trend of late, and very few Red-eyed Vireos.
