Forgive me if I'm repeating stories. I'm sure those at the autumn hawk watches just roll ther eyes by now, and also, I am getting forgetful as I age!
Greg Hanisek's loon sighting reminds me of my yard birds when I lived on Milford's Anchor Beach (a tiny scrap of sand dropped down by the Army Corps of Engineers). During a winter storm, a Common Loon hauled up on the beach below my porch. During a Nor'easter, I had a couple Sanderlings on the LAWN (a tiny patch of grass) in front of the condo.
Then there was that imm. White IBIS that flew past the window as I was sitting on my couch watching a football game...
I've had Loon fly-overs at my yard in Bethany. Maybe I should keep a can of sardines with the feeder supplies in case one decides to "land"(?!).
I wonder if they'd eat Bumble-Bee Tuna...
