The AshThroated Flycatcher & Townsend's Warbler have been seen near the Sagamore Recreation Area, off Savary Avenue by the Sagamore Bridge.(Sagamore, Sagamore Beach, or Bourne? Maybe someone can clarify town.) I've been asked to share info, and I also have a question.
The friendly homeowner at #27 Savary, Burt, asked me to pass on this message: We birders are welcome to bird-watch from his driveway (left of his house, with views into the backyard of #25, where the Townsend's had been seen at least yesterday and today). I should note that I staked out that spot late this afternoon with no luck, but others seem to have done better earlier in the day. (Work hours...) Burt asked if I would leave a note telling him what I saw (which I did), and asked me to pass this request on to other birders. If you bring paper and pen, you can leave a note about what you saw, on his porch and weighted down with something like a brick, or tucked into his screen door. I did have great views of the Ash-Throated Flycatcher, which flew in and landed 10 feet from me, then fed in front of #25. It's always nice to meet homeowners and neighborhood residents who are welcoming to birders and curious about what we're seeing.
Now, the question... I did walk down to #50 Savary, a location where the Townsend's warbler was also reported, and it appeared that the suet feeder which was there a couple days ago has been taken down. I also heard that an older lady was unhappy with the birders (no details--that's all I know). If anyone has any information to share about this, I'd appreciate the info, as may head back down that way this weekend. Feel free to email me if you don't want to post to all.
