Friday Weekly Summary posts provide a weekly update, and let you know, even if there are no NGR birds reported in a given week, that The NGR is alive, well, and still on the job! NGR weeks always start on Saturdays! :^)

THIS WEEK'S NOTES AND HIGHLIGHTS:

After a 2-month hiatus the Florida RBA comes back strong with a FORK-TAILED FLYCATCHER on a remote island in Collier County! Another NC Common Eider! White-tailed Tropicbird and a light-morph Herald Petrel (Trinidade) on NC pelagic trips!

Smooth-billed Anis were reported from two different Florida locations. Since I have been doing The NGR Smooth-billed Anis have been seen in at least 6 different wide-ranging locations in south Florida, not just in Fort Lauderdale by the airport, and that's a great thing!

Also in the 2010 NEWS AND UPDATES section the 7/23 SC Black Rails were updated again, these birds have been very reliable, considering their species, and have been reported multiple times recently!

Good Near Georgia Birding!
