The Avian Fairies' Sparkling Hoard...

Today dawned with fog and without promise.  But, as dawn matured, the fog lifted and the birds descended.  We had an excellent day on the island with many western migrants and a handful of eastern species plus a bonus from Siberia: Blackburnian, Blackpoll, Tennessee, and Magnolia Warblers, and two Red-throated Pipits.  Highlight from the west was a lone Black Swift soaring overhead.  (See the eBird checklist here) We banded nearly 80 birds today--there was much running.  Tomorrow, dear readers, is my final day on the island.  I am scheduled to sail for the Land of Main at 1500 hours.  One more TPAD lies in our collective near-future.

This is D/13.  Jim caught him/her early this morning near Rabbit Cave

Fox Sparrow was a new island bird for me--a handful of these fellows showed up today in the Western Contingent.  The Zono-invasion started today (presaged by a scout seen earlier in the week)

  1. Sadly you cannot mix and match cases and bracelets unless you buy the complete pieces that have those cases and bracelets. Though each does look good on a nice strap. For mere style, there are less expensive options out there compared to Rolex replica watches uk. Though for style, prestige, and value retention these watches are a good bet. Rolex replica watches uk has just launched a smart new new video promotional campaign called "Rolex And Icons." People often ask us "what watch brands are using social media well?" This requires a lot of thought as only a few come to mind who replica watches are even using social media properly. We've even asked experts who track this sort of data and replica watches uk it seems as though for the most part, fashion-based brands with a lot of products for women (i.e. Cartier and Chanel) are doing it best, and it isn't their replica watches uk that are keeping the social media momentum going. Rolex may be quite late to the social media game, but they are off to a great start.
