Day 270- 27th September 2015 - Solitary Sandpiper, Blue-winged Teal and Turkey Vulture

Brrr, it's chilly this morning at +2. Temperatures are dipping a little more each morning. Chance of a frost but I see fog rolling in so that may postpone it for another day. Still a while before daylight, so it's hard to tell yet. Larry picked 2 big buckets and a bag full of tomatoes last evening. Spaghetti sauce in the making.  I've got the craving for a big pot of soup this week, so maybe later today I'll put that on to simmer.  Might squeeze a few hours out for some birding today.
Beautiful Saturday, sun was out, perfect kind of day.  We puttered around in the morning, then headed off toward Barrington to do shopping and pick up the stuff (heat something or other) for the roof to help prevent ice build up/back up this winter that we had ordered a few weeks ago. Of course never to take the straight line, we went via Port Clyde through Thomasville, Baccaro then to Cape Sable Island and back to Barrington.  Doing some birding helps ease the pain of grocery shopping. Not a lot of shorebirds around. Saw a few, plus a Turkey Vulture, Kestrel and maybe a Yellow-Crowned Night Heron.
Waiting for the tide.

The Solitary Sandpiper was in one of the coves at the lake, haven't seen much of them lately.
Turkey Vulture at Thomasville
Blue-winged Teal.

The water at Crow's Neck beach was pretty but cold I bet.

Black-bellied Plover I think.

Enjoy your day!
