A quick drive

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.

Black-necked Stilt

A life bird for me on Plum Island today. A bit far out for good shots, but awesome to see on PI. Also 2 Tri-colored Herons.

Catching up

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.
