Subject: [MASSBIRD] Nauset outer beach
Massbird friends, I drove down Nauset yesterday hoping to photograph snowy
owl, missed it, but had another big white bird walking casually along the
vehicle road in the sand and the grassy wet edge. Also, nice to see a little
fish crow in with the usual gang in the marsh. Birds were hunkered down late
in the day, but the continuing shrike is a great subject from the cover of
the vehicle.
