- Party Size:
- 6 hour(s)
- Our (Marshall J. Iliff, Luke D. Seitz, and Jeremiah R. Trimble) final day on the island. Iliff headed south and seawatched and birded at Lobster Cove until 10:00 a.m.; Jeremiah and Luke checked the main parts of the island for landbirds and noted a slight decrease in the numbers and variety over the previous day(s). We worked Lobster Cove together, including a rope drag, and then headed back to pack. Cave Swallow tape playing all day long (literally!) did us no good, but by the afternoon (16:00) Tom Magarian had found Monhegan''s first feeding around Lobster Cove. Frustratingly, a male Painted Bunting showed up on 1 Nov as well, and weekend landbirds on the mainland included Maine''s second Gray Kingbird at Ogunquit 31 Oct+, Tropical Kingbird in Falmouth MA 30 Oct+, and multiple Cave Swallows 29-30 Oct. WEATHER: Overcast, SW winds at 10 mph, shifting to NW or WNW by 11:00 or so, 45-55 F.
74 species (+4 other taxa) total
