By chance, we met Alex Harper at Corn Creek. He immediately began to point out birds visiting the feeder. We were attempting to find 100 species in each of the Lower 48 states and had found 50 species in Nevada. We asked if he would us find the other 50 we needed. He agreed and we had a delightful day and a half with him. Alex knew all the places to go and what species to find in each location. He guided us from Mount Charleston to Lake Mead. He is extremely knowledgeable, patient, and was able to get us on the target birds. Our final tally was 115 species, including a Brant (7th state record).
