The final tally for this year’s Felix Neck bird-a-thon is 127 species, which seems about typical for this event.
The Felix Neck bird-a-thon started at 6 p.m. Friday and continued for the next 24 hours.
The best birds of the week are the two glossy ibis spotted on May 2 by Buddy Vanderhoop at Lobsterville Beach.
What sort of madness prompts a bird to fly thousands of miles every year between the tropics and temperate habitats?
Four different sightings of barred owls within one week is totally unexpected.
A barred owl was last seen on Martha’s Vineyard on Nov. 8, 1948, almost 68 years ago. But now a fourth barred owl has been confirmed.
Keep your eyes glued to the sky for a glimpse of these species common to our shores.
