Sao Miguel, The Azores, December 2018

This was a short trip to Sao Miguel to see the endemic Azores Bullfinch and to catch up with any American birds left over from the autumn.

The Bullfinch was easy enough to see, I also saw a nice flock of 15 Ring-necked Ducks, 2 Pied-billed Grebe, 6 American Wigeon, Lesser Scaup and a Spotted Sandpiper.
