Canada Warbler and Connecticut Warbler this week.  So excited about the CONW because it took me 3 tries to get.  And I got some so-so pictures. 😁😀

Prairie Warbler that decided to stay on the wrong side of the “No Entry” fence.  Heard only.  

And because of having to become familiar with the call of this bird, I nabbed a county-lifer Prairie Warbler yesterday.

Atlantic Puffin, taken 6/12/19 at Machias Seal Island, about 10 miles SE of Cutler, ME.  If you want to photograph Atlantic Puffins, this is the place to go.  I used Bold Coast Charters.  They start taking reservations in early January.  Book early if you are interested.  Space is limited.  I believe they were totally booked before the end of the month.  You will also see Razorbills, Common Terns, Arctic Terns, possibly Northern Gannets and a few other species.  Note, I went in early June.  You may also see some seals.

Have to backtrack on this.  Got better audio and 75% sure I had the culprit behind the leaves of a tree, throwing its head back at same time as I heard the song.  Field Sparrow.

Bummer. Sorry about that. But some birders are still envious--waiting to see their first Song Sparrow.
