This week marks the first time the Dickcissel has ever been spotted in our home county, Forsyth County, North Carolina! Princess Gail and I were lucky enough to still find it this afternoon, several days after the initial spotting, thanks to Craig McCleary of our Audubon group.

Here are some of Gail’s pictures from this afternoon:
