Walburg BBS Scouting 2019-06-01

I scouted the USGS Walburg Breeding Bird Survey route today. In 2017 I volunteered for this route and have surveyed it twice since then. No issues were encountered along the route this morning, and I hope to survey it officially next weekend. Only one Northern Bobwhite was heard, and only three Eastern Meadowlarks. Attached are some iNat observations I made along the way. And here are a few eBird checklists I made:

Loved seeing this male Black-chinned Hummingbird perched beside a female Roseate Skimmer dragonfly. The hummingbird isn't much bigger!

I was excited to see a pair of Yellow-billed Cuckoos in a pecan tree in the cemetery. I think one was carrying nesting material.
