8/14: Parker River NWR
I took a short trip to Plum Island on 8/14. There was a nice selection of terns at Sandy Point as well as good numbers of shorebirds. Annoying people were out as well.
GREAT BLACK-BACKED GULL
This bird was banded on the Appledore Islands by Dr. Julie Ellis.
BLACK-BELLIED PLOVERS, SEMI-PALMATED PLOVERS, SEMI-PLAMATED SANDPIPERS
Lots of shorebirds means food for raptors.
This PEREGRINE FALCON ended up grabbing a semi-palm plover.
Thousands of migrating TREE SWALLOWS
COMMON TERNS, ROSEATE TERNS

Amazing pictures as usual. The laughing gull needs to cheer up, looks very sad to me:)
