Comments:
Conducting the Monhegan CBC with William Nichols, Peter Vickery, Charlie Duncan, and Paul Miliotis. We split into two groups, this checklist comprises my personal observations from the day: Birding around the Ice Pond and into town (down to the dock) before going out to Whitehead for an hour of sea watching. General birding until lunch. Then more targeted trips around town and into Lobster Cove. At 3 WN and I walked the perimeter trail from Lobster Cove to the Under Hill Trail.
