The other rarity I chased was a Northern Lapwing in New Jersey. While the Birders were out in force, finding the Lapwings was no easy task. Before we found them, we found Blue Jays, Sandhill Cranes, and some aggressive Turkey Vultures. It was the aggressive Turkey Vultures that rustled up the Lapwings. There were about 3 of them far in the back of the field hanging out with some killdeer. It was a great day to be out and about and to catch all those rarities was quite a treat! Anyway, go outside and see some birds!
