Since we are rained out of birding this morning here is a report from the other day. On Tuesday we withstood the light rain and mist (and a late down pour) to enjoy the range of habitat in this wonderful Freeport site. While the light made it hard to make some species there was a lot of activity to view and many other interesting sights. The light and height of the birds did not make for the best photography day but that’s only part of the fun anyway!
