Last Saturday was supposed to have been our Birders who Blog, Tweet and Chirp outing at Plum Island, Ma.
We had nice day planned, with a guide and a bird banding session.
But~with torrential rains forecasted, many decided not to come.
Forecast was grim…
Cindy was coming from Brooklyn, NY…she already had reservations nearby and decided to come anyway.
Jeff and I said we would meet whomever was there…and so..because of the forecast….it was the three of us..
UNTIL…the weather cleared..
We met up with Christopher~who put out a quick facebook message that he was on his way.
He pointed out a Eurasian Widgeon in the marsh across the street.
Soon after Laura and Mark joined us..
Shortly after that Diana and Paul joined us.
And what do you think we all did?
It was fun to catch up and chat with everyone.
Laura brought this hat that is to be worn by a Birder if they are celebrating a birthday ending in a 0..on a bird outing.
This would have graced your head..See what you missed..hee hee.
There were plenty of ducks and shorebirds in the marsh areas…
And we eventually did some birding..
Most of the gang left in search of the Curlew sandpiper being seen on the NH coast.
Cindy, Jeff and I wanted to stay on Plum and check out the scene.
There were enough to view and enjoy.
For a day that was supposed to be rainy and bleak..
It sure did end up being a gorgeous day.
Can it get much prettier than this?
I was having fun photographing the clouds..
Stay tuned for this poor little birds story…
Another BwBTC outing planned tomorrow for a few that couldn’t make the first outing..See you there~
