    #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.
