Just as I pulled into the parking lot, a completely unexpected PURPLE FINCH made an appearance, which was also a lifer for me! Originally, my life list was thought to be at 799, but after realizing a mistake in my list I had to subtract a species from it. So, the purple finch made for my 799th life bird, and a great start to the walk. Sorry for the distant photo.
Life List 800 (2 additional life birds as of April 15, 2017) To see more of my photography, look me up at birder03 on instagram!
