The search for the rare and uncommon has driven humans for millennia. We want things we feel are hard to find, like diamonds or truffles. Birders are no different, and rare bird sightings often cause a tizzy in the local, regional, and national birding communities. Seeking these birds, also known as “twitching,” can prompt thousands of miles of travel. While I don’t go that far (yet), my search for birds rare in the Florida Panhandle has resulted in disappointment, but also unexpected triumph.
