April 4, 2007

Cold, 30s', drizzly. Had the day off and went to all my spots.
Long Road--Pine Warbler having a territory skirmish with Yellow-Rumped Warbler.
Nothing at Shaw Road.
YMCA bridge -- Several Osprey fishing, group of all ages of Great Black-backed Gulls, Cormorants, Great Blue Herons.
Winsegansett -- Heard a big Oystercatcher racket going on. There were two pairs of them doing their piping tournament thing, squawking and flying in unison.
Thought I saw Snowy Owl, but turned out to be Great Egret. Lots of Dunlin, but no more Horned Larks.

Lots of goldfinches and house finches on the feeders today because of the rain. YELLOW
