Today and yesterday (Nov. 2, 3) we've had a red-breasted nuthatch coming to our shelled peanut feeder. Looks like a male with a fairly bright red breast. On Wed, Oct 31 we also saw a red-breasted nuthatch at Pea Island along the "tunnel" walk from the visitor's center to the overlook platform.
Also on Oct. 31, we sighted a yellow-billled cuckoo in the shrubs around the new platform overlooking South Pond at Pea Island. Great looks at white pelicans all over North Pond and South Pond. A few tundra swans were present. Avocets, marbled godwits and skimmers in N. Pond.
Our warbler visiitors here in Coinjock have been scarce this fall...male & female redstarts, black and white, parula, and one blackpoll.
We're off to fight the winds at Pea Island again today.
