I went one day with the masses of crowds to see the White-wagtail who was found by Mark Wynja in a corn field with 70 American Pipits at the corner of 34 St and 33a St in Delta. When I went it was raining and the bird blended into the mud. Yousif Attia who had a scope let me look through his scope and I had great views of the bird! Here is a distant record shot I was able to get. This was a lifer for me.  This bird breeds in much of Europe and Asia and parts of North Africa. It is found in North America during the summer in Alaska.
