A ratty-looking Parula foraging in the yard yesterday was a welcomed yardbird and the kick-off of FALL MIGRATION.
With all the water in the Portage Marsh I'm ready to build an Ark. A scour of the lagoon and outer sandbar produced only a spotty, sanderling, and g. yellowlegs.
of interest were single long-tailed duck, gadwall, and greater scaup. Not shabby for July. Common Terns still on eggs. Is that normal?
