Hey Birders,
 
Well a fairly slowish day, here on the island. Another great season has to come and gone, as this will be the last post for the spring 2011 season.
 
Here are the highlights from today....
 
Prothonotary Warbler - same 2 birds hanging out in the swamp at Fish Point
Yellow-billed Cuckoo - 1 bird at Lighthouse Point
 
Eastern Screech-Owl - same bird as the previous 3 days present at Fish Point
 
I had to leave at noon, so there aren't as many sightings as previous posts, but it is likely there were more interesting things around.
 
Number of species seen on the island since April 25th: 218
 
Hope to see more of you next year!
 
Good Birding,
Ken Burrell
