May.... we wait all year for it's arrival and savor each morning with it's loud chorus of both returning birds and those passing through on their way to nesting grounds to the north.
A Bay-breasted Warbler, one of several seen at the Parker River NWR this past Monday, 5-17-10.
A Chestnut-sided Warbler makes a bright and cheery addition to one's day list anytime there seen.
One of our local breeding birds, this Piping Plover was feeding at the waters edge at the very different and much smaller Sandy Point State Beach. This winters storms re-arranged lots of sand at the southern tip of Plum Island.
