I appreciated the person who posted EVERYTHING they saw while out birding the other day. The common things never get much attention, so I thought I'd join in.
I had a GREAT day at Nahant today. Got three new birds for my list and it was just so busy out there:
Cardinal Common yellow throat Catbird R.W. blackbird Yellow warbler Robin Red tailed hawk Chickadee Song Sparrow Kildeer Blue Jay Warbling vireo Yellow rumped warbler Redstart Baltimore oriole Blue and gray gnatcatcher Towhee White crowned sparrow Ruby crowned kinglet Swainson's thrush Turkey vulture Eurasian tree sparrow Tree swallow Northern water thrush Sandhill crane Rough winged swallow Sora rail (actually saw them, one about 10 feet and the other 50 feet away) Goldfinch Starling
Coot Canada goose Grackle Caspian tern Pied-billed grebe Field sparrow Mallard House sparrow Rock pigeon Peep (?) Mourning dove Wood duck Pelican Blue heron Wilson's warbler
