On what felt like a decidedly spring-like day, a very enjoyable two and a half hour watch today in Chouet landfill produced 126 observations of our locally colour-ringed LBBGs! Although not particularly easy viewing conditions at first, I eventually managed to get very close to many of these birds. It was fun to watch several of the large males bossing their small patches...clearly getting pumped up for another season.
