#ABArare update – A lot of birds are sticking around

Many of the "#ABArare" birds that we've written about over the past month or so are still around. Here's a quick east-to-west rundown of what's still being reported, with links to the original posts:

Pink-footed Goose in Newfoundland: seen on Dec 9.

Little Egret in Massachusetts: seen on Dec 10.

Northern Lapwing in Massachusetts (Bridgewater): seen on Dec 9.

Western Spindalis in Florida: seen on Dec 9, missed on Dec 10.

Nutting's Flycatcher in Arizona: seen on Dec 10.

White Wagtail: seen on Dec 10.

Falcated Duck: seen on Dec 9.

Gray Hawk: seen on Dec 10.

Citrine Wagtail: seen on Dec 9.

I also want to give an honorable mention to New York's first Virginia's Warbler. It was last reported on Dec 3, but there have been a few unsuccessful searches for it since then.
