We had a hard time telling it from House Finch, and so won't count it on the life list
Woah. We did make it to the Lek around sunrise, and I've never seen anything like that. They chased each other, they strutted, they fought, they made that weird toilet-plunger popping sound.
We got a couple of quick looks at this species, enough to put it on the trip list but not enough to put it on the life list. Maybe next time.
