good morning at Kennebunk Plains
| Paul Wells <pfwells51...>: May 11 02:25PM -0400

Sally and I enjoyed a nice 2.5 hour stroll around the southerly portion of
the Maguire Road section of the Kennebunk Plains this morning. A couple of
the gullies out in the hinterlands are good "warbitat." Numerous
Chestnut-sided (FOYs) and Prairie warblers were the highlights. Lots of
Towhees, too. Full report at eBird:

At South Point Sanctuary, lots of eye-level views of No. Parula, Black and
White, Magnolia, Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher, and Yellow Warbler.
Behind the Firehouse, I finally got a look at a Chestnut-Sided Warbler, and
2 gorgeous male Scarlet Tanagers. Also, BT Green, Magnolia, No. Parula,
Redstart, and lots of Black and Whites.
Along with a very cooperative Ovenbird at the Elphis Road pond, a fine

Back to top North Maine Woods...again
| "Bob Duchesne" <duchesne...>: May 10 08:10PM -0400

It's scouting season. Having scouted for the birding festivals earlier this
week, I turned my attention to the tours I will be leading with Seth Benz
and Schoodic Institute later. (Not a solicitation. The tours are full.)
Two days in the North Maine Woods were highly entertaining. The spruce
grouse get downright goofy this time of year, and the woodpeckers are
drumming everywhere during the morning hours. In one patch of woods west of
Chamberlain Lake, my wife and I encountered three different breeding
territories of black-backed woodpeckers, all within easy walking distance of
each other. It's weird when black-backed woodpeckers are the most common
woodpeckers around. Finches are still going nuts up thataway.

For an entertaining recap, see:

a male- he's been here every half hour or so between 4:00 and 7:30. There
was one at our neighbor's house yesterday.

Very excited to a pair, m and f, of Purple Finch at my one feeder this afternoon. I doubt they are nesting near here, but I'm still hoping the phoebe and titmouse will. Chippie and cardinal possible too...hopefully. Sorry, no new migrants here. Hope to go find some.
