American Pipit – a new bird for me

American Pipit – a new bird for me

On Sep. 16, 2014, at the Ridgefield NWR, I observed occasional small flocks of American Pipits working the gravel road in front of my vehicle as I drove the 4-mile loop of the refuge.  They definitely liked scouring the ground for seeds and insects as many other small birds do.  So that is about the only shot I had of them–on the ground.  This bird does have a small tidbit in its bill.  I’m glad I got to add this bird to my life list even though it’s a fairly common bird all over North America and beyond.
