Couple easy chases last Saturday
Glad at least one pelagic came close enough and stuck around.
Also “commute” #230 (and Bonaparte’s Gull was #231)!
Took a week to work up the energy, but it hung around.
About time for this one. Couldn’t have been in a weirder place.
Thanks Jeanie and Tom!
Not what I was expecting this weekend on patch.
Can’t believe I didn’t wait for better sun this morning, but they didn’t go anywhere thankfully.
Also res #175 (surprisingly not on my expected list in hindsight), commute #226.
Phone dinged while I was on a checkin call this morning. Cliff: “if you’re out birding, hudsonian godwit at lower mill st pond at beaver brook”. “!!!” Realized I had a couple hours before anything urgent, so I sent a quick message saying I’ll be back in an hour and ran out.
Twenty five minutes later:
Yes, on the heavily vegetated side and not the drained pond.
County 302, patch 180!
