Subject: [MASSBIRD] Cape Ann - 3/1
Here's a complete list from the BBC trip to Cape Ann on Wednesday. Seas
were calm, the weather warm and the rains never came!

While we did not have high numbers of birds, we had a wonderful
variety. Many thanks to the birder who came by and pointed out the King
Eider at Andrews!
