Number 817 is Loggerhead Kingbird at Bill Baggs Cape Florida in Miami!!
After getting off the boat yesterday and the high of the Great Skua, I drove to Raleigh from Hatteras, got in at 4 am to catch a 6 a.m. flight to Miami, where my friends Noah Frade and Shane Runyon had found the bird early but then we could not relocate it.
Victor Stoll bushwhacked his way in and refound the bird and was able to get a bunch of crazy birders on it for incredible looks!! What a crazy few days!
It’s only fitting that Ruben Stoll, Victor and I got our last 2 birds together.
