Five intrepid birders kayaked down the river, through the marsh and around
the island this morning on the falling tide. We saw a number of good birds,
including a mottled young adult LITTLE BLUE HERON along with three adults
and six juveniles. We identified one ROSEATE TERN in flight among the ~300
Common Terns out on and around the island. There were also a number of
LEAST TERNS and American Oystercatchers there, with several juveniles of
both species observed. Other species of interest included: Broad-winged
Hawk, Laughing Gull, Black-bellied Plover, Ruddy Turnstone, Spotted
Sandpiper, Purple Martin, and Saltmarsh Sparrow.
