Yellow-throated Warbler Update & Binocular Purchase

No warbler today. Drew videotaped the stump area from 7:40 am - 9 am, and not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse (that he could see...) Then, Misty came over from 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm to keep watch, and in that time only a small flock of chickadees flew in to feed. No other birds. This is day three with very low visitation by birds in general to our feeders. Where have the birds gone? I'll have to canvas the neighborhood to see who else is putting feed out.

On another bird-related note: I have been chatting with so many birders of late, that I got all excited and we went out and bought some nice binoculars. Now, we are ready to view some owls at the old Brunswick Naval Air Station landing strips.

And soon, we'll make reservations to do a bit of birding on Machias Seal Island in mid-summer! I am getting so excited for all the new adventures we are planning...and, it is all due to having met so many nice birders who have peaked our interest! Thank you all so much...
