Yup, Epic All Right

At 1:38 p.m. I Tweeted "We're about to break daily BE record," thanks to a text from Tony Leukering. And we did, when Pete clicked # 40 on the day. The final Bald Eagle count today was 46.

A foraging frenzy of hundreds of aerial foraging gulls and terns at the hawk watch around 5 p.m. capped an amazing day of birding. I heard from Cameron that Morning Flight was crazy, with multiple Bay-breasted Warblers and a host of other good things. A Cackling Goose spend much of the day swimming its obviously lonesome way (i.e. it wasn't hooked in with any family group) amongst the Canadas on Bunker Pond. Mark Garland and I had. . . well, an interesting flycatcher flyby at the meadows, but unless it is found again by others it may remain no more than that, interesting.
