Comments:
More casual birding today trying to cover new areas: Walked with Paul Hitchcox up Black Head (10) to Fern Glen (17), right on 1, back on Station Hill?, then Maple (16) taking Cathedral Woods (11) back to Main Street. After lunch a quick check of the harbor before going to Lobster Cove via Ocean Ave and back Lobster Cove Road. Under Hill Trail and back down Burt Head (4), down Horn Hill and back home. Still very cold out here, hovering in the low 20s but the cold wind (10 mph, gusting close to 20 at times) has made birding almost unbearable.
