Today I traveled with Captain Jack (who, ironically, hates boats) from Port Clyde, Maine, to Monhegan Island for a few days of birding. Since we’ll be busy wandering and visiting, I’ll just be posting a daily list and a photo or two until our return. It’s been I believe five years, and I missed this place. (Woo-hoo!)

Blackbird

The blackbird hangs around. I got a couple half-way decent photos. Also a Least Flycatcher and a Palm Warbler. (Many palms today.) Hated to have to leave—the snake I saw swimming across the Ice Pond kind of made up for the bittersweet return trip inshore.
