What can I say? We went, we saw little, we came home. Higgins loved it. Eliza is always eager. On the last two trips Higgins has been in uncharacteristic high gear, tugging constantly at his leash, always wanting to take the point. I think he still remembers that Woolly Bear from a couple of trips ago and is determined to go find it again, mighty hunter that he is 😉
With a northeast wind threatening rain – there were a few drops as we were leaving – the only songbirds we saw were a couple of sparrows in the parking lot. We walked out the central road past the towers to the southeast beach. There was a tiny raft of seven female Common Eiders there bobbing in and out of sight in the small chop. There were also some near Bar Rock and along the west side of the causeway. That was it.
