What a Week » jeffwellswalk1
Here’s a portion of the group that took part in our bird walk and talk, led by ornithologist Jeff Wells, senior scientist for the International Boreal Conservation Campaign. We’re looking at large seabirds called Northern gannets flying over Seal Harbor. In a short walk through woods, park and shoreline within a quarter-mile of the Notebook, we saw and/or heard these species: goldfinch, chickadee, crow, mourning dove, herring gull, dark-eyed junco, black-and-white warbler, black-throated green warbler, redstart, Northern gannet, laughing gull, cedar waxwing, catbird, blue jay, great black-backed gull, double-crested cormorant and song sparrow. And we weren’t even looking during the prime birding hours.
