Fall is Here!

When did it become fall? It seems to me like summer just started. I was able to add several birds this summer during a trip to Newfoundland. My wife and I drove down the east coast of the Avalon Peninsula and stopped at several harbors and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. Along the way we spotted several shorebird species including Greater Yellowlegs and Semipalmated Plover. We also spotted some Moose!

I spent Saturday morning at Lake Wabukayne and added some new species: Green Heron, Black-throated Blue Warbler and Rose-breasted Grosbeak. I saw several warblers, but they moved so quickly I had trouble getting a positive ID.

I’m looking forward to seeing more birds during fall migration and hopefully getting the last dozen or so species to reach my goal of 100!
