Warblers are Moving South

Ingrid and I were up at the crack of dawn for to look for migrating warblers.  Within a few minutes of arriving we were thrilled to see the trees filled with Cape May, Black-throated Green and Yellow Warblers, Common Yellowthroats and American Redstarts. On the way home we saw a beautiful American Bald Eagle.

Not a Prothonotary Warbler

Recent sighting of a Prothonotary Warbler led me to Butler Head in Bath, hoping to see this rare bird (at least in the northeast), Arriving at sunrise, I saw a wide variety of warbler . . . and was thrilled to see the Prothonotary high in a pine tree. Unfortunately upon returning home and reviewing…

Solitary Sandpiper

Black-throated Green Warbler

Went for a morning jog on my new knee and heard Black-throated Green and Black-and-White Warblers singing all around me.  When I got home (now my other knee is hurting), I rush back out with my camera and got photos of the two warblers (plus a Common-yellow Throat and Yellow Warbler), Cedar-waxwings and the Ospreys…

Not a White-faced Ibis

The Maine birding community is all “a flutter” (that never gets old) about the White-faced Ibis being seen at Scarborough Marsh. The problem is  . . . I don’t think it’s a White-face Ibis. I’ve made multiple trips to the Marsh and on the hike in birder after birder told me excitedly that they had…
