Today I chased the rarities that are being seen just outside of the Philadelphia area.
First up was the Allen's Hummingbird that is making appearances for 12 consecutive days at a private residence. This bird showed within 10-15 minutes of my arrival and offered fine views as it sipped nectar from the feeder that now has a heater connected to it.
I then went over to the Crum Creek Reservoir for a try at the putative Tundra Bean Goose.
The bird was present, along with several dozen other birders, when I arrived. There were initial good views from the dam area, and then better views from the roadside above the reservoir. Finally the best views came from the gracious homeowner's pool deck.
