Summer Tanager & Great Horned Owl

Well the storm brought a beautiful female Summer Tanager to the reserve ! I love storm birds ! I also found a Great Horned Owl in West Newbury today, crows alerted me to the birds presence.

Barred Owl & Saw Whet Banding

I have been slacking on the picture front of my birding, but I have been out and about none the less. I am helping with banding Saw-Whet Owls this season at Drumlin Farm. The season has started slow with poor weather and Southern winds, but this week is shaping up to be a good one.

 Lots of interesting Sparrows about on Plum, I have seen Lincoln and a Clay Colored. Also I found about 40+ Red Knot roosting on the beach in front of 10th street, which was a first.

Finally today my neighbor Geoff notified me of a Barred Owl so I went and took a few shots of the fellow, he appeared a tad wet.
