Subject: [MASSBIRD] Birding Pleasant Bay
Numbers were again impressive on the bay flats, Chatham, Four of us spent 3 hours on the flats and marsh edge of this expansive very birdy area. A short walk over to the outer beach provided views of terns and northern gannets, bet the sheer expanse and thousands of birds make this a memorable trip. This area has produced marbled godwit, golden plovers and buff breasts in late August and September. Please consider joining us on Tuesday mornings.
Todays list is below.
