Songbirds cannot swim.

Dedicated and perhaps obsessive birders live for this.

Finally! The southward migration of songbirds is becoming more intense.

The southward migration often means birders go to the Gay Head Cliffs at the western end of the Island.

So far we have had no luck. The gray heron that was on Tuckernuck and Muskeget last week has not been seen again.

Northwest winds overnight bring loads of migrating songbirds our way.
