Highlights: Western Grebe (photo above), Northern Cardinal
We've been experiencing some extreme weather lately, not to mention a 14 hour power outage yesterday. While the activity in the woods has been slow there have been some good sightings. Certainly one of the birds of the season was the Western Grebe found by Jason Bojczyk at the harbor today. It's a good time of year for gulls and multiple Great Black-backed Gulls and a Glaucous Gull were present. The season's first Northern Cardinal spent the day at the feeders and we have continued seeing an increase in the number of American Tree Sparrows and Dark-eyed Juncos. We're set to get a little break in this weather tomorrow, hopefully there will be another surprise.

Oh, your blog gets read alright! I know several of us down here in the Carolinas who read the posts with our tongues hanging out wishing we could have birds like ya'll do!!! We appreciate your effort more than you know and look forward to your next season--and visiting WPBO again in the future. Thanks for all your hard work and your diligence in posting.
