Ingrid and I have a saying . . . “The camera giveth and the camera taketh away”. By that we mean, the camera can help you find a bird you could never recognize with the naked eye and other times makes you realize the incredibly rare bird you just saw was a relatively common visitor.
Today I birded Weskeag Marsh hoping to get a Long-billed Dowitcher . . . the camera confirmed.
It also helped me catch three Dunlins in a flock of Peeps.
And an American Bittern as it sailed by.
