Willets, Egrets and foxes oh my

in Blog, Weekend Birding

Continuing from the previous article.

Late Sunday morning, my wife and I went to the Fuller Farm which is west of [tag]Scarborough[/tag], [tag]Maine[/tag]. We walked the trails looking for [tag]birds[/tag] and other [tag]wildlife[/tag]. The Bobolinks were absent, but a Chestnut-Sided Warbler was seen and others heard throughout the woods. The time of day kept our species count down, but we recorded a Pileated Woodpecker and an Indigo Bunting. We are going to revisit the farm this weekend and will start as soon as the sunrises, which should allow for more birds to be seen.

On First Avenue in [tag]Biddeford Pool[/tag] Saturday morning, we saw Tree Swallows exhibiting breeding behavior on a powerline. (photos below) A cooperative Eastern Willet allowed a few [tag]photographs[/tag] at Granite Point later in the day.

This is the final installment of the series of articles which highlighted our [tag]birding[/tag] adventures this past weekend. The photos below are also highlights mentioned in this and the other two articles.
