Really back in the day Bob Pease walked out from Sandy Neck Road into the Great Marsh for the same reason. Herman would contact him and walk out with him. He would take me, too.
Life bird: 7/17/1977 "Barnstable". It was here with Bob Pease & Herman.
For those who may not know the name Bob Pease I recall he was everything Barnstable, although it might be also Sandwich. I believe he published a "Birds of Barnstable" which might have been just a listing with status per species.
A google search does not turn up any reference.
