Yesterday evening after a long day at work for both of us, Ingrid told me that every birder in Maine had picked up a Say’s Phoebe in New Gloucester a rural community in central Maine. We had both seen Say’s Phoebes in Texas, Arizona and California (photo above) . . . but it is rarely seen east of the Mississippi.
So I was up at 4:45 to drive the backroads to a pasture where the bird was seem . . . but no luck. Lots of Boblinks, Eastern Phoebes and Savannah Sparrows but only one birder supposedly saw it today.
