One of the neat things about going to another birding location when birding is slow in your own area is that you might encounter a lot of species that you normally don't see near home. Such was the case when I was on the Delmarva peninsula during mid-November. However, the downside is when you return to your own area, it can seem even slower by comparison than when you left.
Walt Childs and I did some birding west and north of here, but only saw a few avian species worth noting.
I did some birding here in Old Trail, took one hike at Lickinghole, and made a quick trip to King Family Vineyards to see the Ross's Goose and Snow Goose that Pete Myers found there.

The best bird here in Old Trail this week was a Brown Thrasher. Although common from mid-March through the end of October, they are fairly rare here during the winter months.>
A good sign of slow birding is when I start photographing Wooly Worms.
