Gooseberry Island walk, September 16, 2007
An impromptu walk this a.m. on the chance that last night's cold front would bring a number of migrants proved to be less than expected. We had the following, Peregrine and Merlin, Whimbrel, several Loon flyovers, Indigo Bunting, Song Sparrow, Towhee, Common Yellowthroats, Red Breasted Nuthatch, Tree Swallows, Turnstones,House Wren, Cat birds, large flock of Cormorants with cool flight behavior Palm Warblers and a number of chilly Monarchs. Members present, Mike LaBossiere, Alice Morgan, and Mike Boucher joined us for the morning. An otherwise beautiful morning at Gooseberry just not as "Birdy" as we had hoped.
