Scott and I had great looks at a Lincoln's Sparrow in the feed plot this morning. Scott also had a Blue-headed Vireo in the Coast Guard Strip. A flock of ~15 American Pipits was feeding along the trails and a Snow Bunting flew over.
Huge flock of about 2,000 gulls feeding between us and the breakwater, but wasn't able to pick anything unusual out. Tom Murray had a Vesper Sparrow over the weekend.
Killer looks at a common checkered skipper and a variegated fritillary.
