Checked out a couple of spots in the Lymes yesterday morn with  Hank Golet 
who knows the area so well.
Among the birds we had were:
2 Pine Warblers (heard only)
1 Fox Sparrow
3 Bald Eagles, 2  adults, 1 imm.
Peregrine Falcon on the Baldwin Bridge tower
2 Common Mergs, m. and f.
The mergs were on the Lieutenant River near where we saw the  adult eagles. 
 The immature eagle was seen at the end of Ely Ferry  Rd.
In the afternoon I went back to Ely Ferry Rd for a bit after doing some  
errands and had the following:
3 Virginia Rails (heard only)
2 Ospreys taking aerial swipes an an imm. Bald Eagle (most likely the same  
one as in the morn)
2 Eastern Bluebirds
1 Swamp Sparrow
a flock of Am. Goldfinch
lots of Red-winged Blackbirds singing in the marshes.
