Highlights: Moose, Canada Warbler

We'd like to thank all the folks who attended the WPBO field trip led by Jerry Ziarno and Tom Wheeker. While there was other excitement at the tip Point this morning the sighting of a bull Moose stole the show for many of us. He made it out to the tree line behind the Merlin pole and was seen by many right from the waterbird shack. We continued to see a drop off in warbler diversity as the mid-season migrants have begun appearing. Sightings in the woods today included Ruffed Grouse, Northern Goshawk, Bald Eagle, Black-backed Woodpecker, Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, Blue-headed Vireo, Golden-crowned and Ruby-crowned Kinglets, Tennessee, Nashville, Black-throated Green, and Canada Warblers, and Lapland Longspur.

Did anyone also happen to see a couple get engaged on the north side of the dune?
