June has made it to our shores, even though the cool wet weather seems more suitable for April or May.

Migrating shorebirds have been scarce so far this month; we have observed relatively few.

Allan Keith found a cattle egret in the fields at the Grey Barn on May 20.

A glossy ibis was spotted by Richard Price on May 12, as it foraged in the salt marsh along Sengekontacket Pond.

Last week’s column was too good to continue.

April goes out with a bang. The northward migration is in full swing.
