We moved on trying not to stop too much with our destination being Bear Cove Point Road. We arrived after 1 p.m. and stopped to do some phishing. Again, in came lots of warblers, flycatchers and sparrows. Every place we stopped we drew in birds zooming around us.
The Yellow-bellied Flycatchers absent on my last trip down were once again around.
On the trip we saw some baby Spotted Sandpipers at Cape Broyle and this great little Ruffed Grouse. This is a glimpse into a posting yet to come on the babies of 2011.
Even on the way home we continued to see birds including the Ring-necked Duck spotted last week, an American Bittern that flew over the car and an unknown duck with white under wings that appeared flying over a pond, lifted up over the trees and disappeared into a body of water behind the tree line. Never before have I enjoyed the array of birds seen on this trip. It was a day to remember, for sure! It was such a pleasure to share it with another avid bird watcher. Tip: Do not go to Bear Cove Point Road without a pint of fly dope.
