Another fabulous day, think this has been the best weekend in a long time! Larry & I left home before 7 am to go to the Hawk on Cape Sable Island and meet everyone else. Over to Cape Light via boat we went. Alix played tour guide as he pretty well knows every inch of the Island. What a morning we had - another lifer, although not a great photo - Black Crowned Night Heron, lots of sheep on the island, shore birds were beginning to really get moving - Willets, Wimbrels, Sandpipers, Semi-Palmated Plovers. Of course there were Ducks, Gulls (including Laughing) and an odd Gannet that flew by. We roamed the Island for 3 hours and then Leslie and the boat returned to pick us up. From there we took Lou-Anne and Donna off to Hemeon's Head, some more shore birds there but not as many. The Laughing Gull was still Laughing at Lou-Anne as he has been all weekend. After that it was time for the girls to go home and us too, we took them out on the highway and bid them good by. A great weekend shared with many new friends.
Enjoy your day!
