Drove north the Thomaston Maine to get a rare (for Maine) Wilson’s Phalarope
A visit to Scarborough Marsh yielded First of the year Salt Marsh Sparrow and Glossy Ibis.
A trip to central Maine for a family meeting yielded some birds in Mt. Vernon.
Warblers are bug eaters . . . but at certain times of the year . . . they will turn to seeds to supplement their diet. For the last week we have had a pair of warblers showing up on one of our platform feeders . . . probably with young in the nest.
With Ingrid tied up with a class I spent the day birding . . . hitting Capisic Park in Portland and then traveling to Timber Trail in Biddeford Pool, Maine.
Today I took a break from lunch to bird at nearby Eaton Farm and saw a nice variety of birds and even a White-tailed Deer.
Warblers Galore at Butler Head in Bath, Maine
Got a Tennessee Warbler today at Great Salt Bay . . . got a bunch of ticks as well . . . but at least we got a lifer!!!
Saw Black-billed Cuckoos in two different locations on the same day.
During a Maine summer . . . the Yellow Warbler is an omnipresent resident . . . starting to see them in full force.
