Other than a steadily increasing number of Alcid & Tern chicks and the
first EIDER chicks emerging, things have been relatively quiet.
Yesterday was an exception, with several birds apparently arriving Tuesday

There were several RED BREASTED NUTHATCHES, making me wonder if this is
going to be another banner year for that species.
There are still 3-4 around. Anyone else seeing more Nuthatches than usual?

A single GRACKLE arrived but apparently the Terns persuaded it to vacate.

A RED WINGED BLACKBIRD has been more persistent. It's still around and
causing distress in the tern colony.

Wednesday's Bird-Of-The-Day was a brilliant male SCARLET TANAGER that
apparently got the Bum's Rush from the terns.
