Comments:
Maine Audubon's Weekly Bird Walk | Starting as the sun was just cresting the horizon; slow start but pretty good show as migrants funneled in, especially around the orchard and pond. Only walked from the orchard around the north meadow today because we spent so much time at the orchard. High tide. Light breeze. 48-54 degrees F throughout the morning.
