Rainy day activity

in Blog, Weekend Birding

Despite the gloomy weekend, [tag]birds[/tag] were still numerous if you were there to see them. Conditions for photography were terrible, but that did not stop the birds from flitting about the area.

My wife and I decided to forgo Evergreen this weekend and instead, [tag]birded[/tag] our regular loop. From Granite Point to Biddeford Pool, the [tag]birding[/tag] was not disappointing. Black-Bellied Plovers, Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs and Dunlins in full breeding color populated the beach at Curtis Cove. A lone pair of Common Terns were on the beach as seen from Bay Street in Biddeford Pool. [tag]Warblers[/tag] flitted around the bushes along Etherington Pond near Fortunes Rock Beach.

A few opportunities did present themselves for a couple of [tag]photos[/tag], including a few shots of a Wilson’s Warbler near Fortunes Rock Beach. Enjoy these photos by simply clicking a thumbnail for a larger view. Comments and criticisms are greatly appreciated.
