While it may not big news for some, a B.C. Chickadee in the yard on plum island happens about twice a year...and I had 2 birds at my feeders. Big day...also a beautiful Savannah Sparrow in the thicket across the street. ( i didnt get a pic)
Palm Warblers & Hermit Thrush's were quite numerous in the woods of West Newbury, and the Eastern Screech is still in his / her roost !!! My latest screech owl to date.
I had a nice early show today of a few Short-eared Owls dog fighting and hunting in the reserve. I also had a few first of the year's: Killdeer, Osprey, Glossy Ibis, Fox Sparrow and Pectoral Sandpiper.
Into the sun shot, but still a capture of the dog fight between the 2 owls
While birding early on Easter my buddy and I caught a Northern Shrike in the S-curves in the Parker. This is he second time I've seen this bird in the past few weeks. I wish I remembered my new little point & shoot takes HD video, but I forgot. At any rate the shrike was singing its heart out, really amazing to see.
