Does a gray, slushy, mid-40s day in January sound like a Netflix kinda day? Well for birders in Maine its a . . . “lets get outside” kinda day.
Ingrid and I were up early and heading to Hermit Island, a campground on the end of ocean peninsula which reliably attracts birds . . . all year around.
We were delighted to get a couple rare winter species (Northern Flicker and Golden-crowned Kinglets) and lots and lots of Robins, Blue Jays and Goldfinches.
We also found Captain America’s Shield high in a tree.
