Yesterday I didn't have a chance to post, but yesterday (4/14) at Horton Woods in Saco, Brad Moser and I had a few FOYs and other highlights: PALM WARBLER, SWAMP SPARROW, several RUBY-CROWNED KINGLETS and a high count of 16 HERMIT THRUSHES. They seemed to be around every corner! A lovely FOX SPARROW briefly showed himself, too.
Also yesterday, at the Spurwink River Crossing in Scarborough, we had two LESSER YELLOWLEGS and two GLOSSY IBIS. Four days ago on Hills Beach Road in Biddeford, I had a flyover GREATER YELLOWLEGS. Chipping Sparrows, White-throated Sparrows, and Eastern Phoebes have taken over our yard as of last week, and just yesterday, we had a gorgeous PINE WARBLER feeding on our suet. Ha... I just turned my head to look out the window, and the Pine Warbler is right there, munching away at the suet as I type this.
