My timing was perfect this afternoon! I would have enjoyed it closer....... but a January bird! I told a couple other birders that this should stick around. That is probably wrong! So go as soon as you can! Even Wed. in that wind.
Loads of other foy there for me. I couldn't find the King Eider. The flock was in the inlet, but along the Island Beach side. Far. Maybe with my zoom lens on the scope......
If I had stayed, I would have had killer looks at the Guillemot! It came back over to the lighthouse! So hopefully birders have time to wait tomorrow.
I went chasing the Ash-throated at the opposite end of the island. In hindsight, that was really iffy with the weather closing in. But I was there on the island! I was not going to stay at the lighthouse anyway - wimpy me was not enjoying the wind and cold.
Some friends and I were wondering about insects still being active and what the Flycatcher was feeding on. Well, its feeding! I had an insect on my back window. Came from the island somewhere.
