Migration Bird Count

Report from Eric Mills...
Four of us (Anne and I, Murray Newell and Cindy) had a colorful morning during the NSMC. At one time, we had a male Scarlet Tanager and a male Summer Tanager in the same binocular field; close by were a male Cardinal, a Baltimore Oriole, about 8 Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, and a male Indigo Bunting.

Later in the day, Anne and I found 2 more Summer Tanagers (a male on the Camp Road and a female at a feeder in Westport), while Murray and Cindy found a Blue Grosbeak in Westport.

The Eurasian Wigeon is still in Pond Cove, along with a pair of Gadwalls (two males yesterday).
