Gosh, I can only have ONE??
Hmm . . . .
I think my favorite "foreign" bird for 1999 was a beautiful singing male Northern Parula seen at High Island last April. He was a very cooperative bird and we got GREAT looks at him. (OK, OK, Texas isn't a foreign country BUT it's so far away - and they DO talk differently - it feels almost foreign to me!)
My favorite "native" (that would be Washington) bird was the long hoped for Tufted Puffin seen at Point Grenville during the Grays Harbor Shorebird festival.
