Subject: [Maine-birds] Additional Highlights This Week, 7/22-28
Hi all,
A few of my additional observations of note over the past seven days included:
- 9 species of shorebirds led by 150+ Semipalmated Sandpipers but also included 9 Piping Plover, 2 Whimbrels, and 8 Sanderlings (FOF), Popham Beach State Park, 7/24 (with Jeannette).
- 2 PARASITIC JAEGERS (FOY) and 4+ Cory's Shearwaters (FOY), Dyer Point, Cape Elizabeth, 7/25 (with Jeannette).
- 2 AMERICAN OYSTERCATCHERS among 10 species of shorebirds, 1 Merlin, etc, Pine Point, 7/27.

Jeannette's photos of the Little Egret from 7/25 are here:

And since I am still getting questions about the bird's identity because of the slightly yellowish lores, I'll post the link to my Facebook album addressing this from a couple of weeks ago:
