A great bird at close range around the Hellcat tower, Lapland Longspur . Other recent sighting's from the Parker include ; American Avocet, Snow Bunting and dark morph Gyrfalcon. The Gyrfalcon is still up for debate for birders in the area, but the bird I saw was pretty definitively a Gyr. I got one bad picture which was just to fuzzy for any field marks.
I stole the idea for this photo from my buddy Hans, he takes way better pictures than I do, check him out. www.hanszimmern.com3

A Lark Sparrow was found on Plum so I went to check it out today, I found the bird foraging about the Hellcat area. A mature bald eagle also put up the roosting Herons and Egrets along the dike. Other birds seen: Black Crowned Night Heron, American Golden Plover, Black Bellied Plover, White Rumped sandpiper, Stilt Sand Piper, and Pectoral Sandpiper, and various normal peeps.

Well the Falcons are back on PI, I've seen mostly Juveniles and couple adults. I've taken some time off from birding due to the heat, but I am back...and the weather is cooling. Thank god. More pics to come.

Baby wild Turkey's and Willet's were around in the Parker this morning. The Turkey's were quite comical. A few other recent pictures as well.

Well, I have been slacking in my updates, so this is sort of a combined smattering of pictures. I traveled to the Kennebunk Plains, an upland prairie habitat to see; grasshopper sparrows, vesper sparrows and upland sandpipers. Very cool place. Indigo Bunting's and Blue Winged Warblers have returned to Martin Burns. Plovers and Least Terns are on nests here on Plum. I also completed a bird survey at my in-laws farm in Boxford and found a Savannah Sparrow, a first for me at this location. Pictures are in no set order.
