Northern Harrier at Bombay Hook.

My internet has been screwed up for a few days, so I haven’t been able post anything. Stay away from Comcast, folks.

I made a trip to Bombay Hook a few days ago, which was OK, but not as fruitful as I’d hoped. We need some cool weather and some rain to speed up migration.

Today I stopped early at Sandy Point, but the sunrise wasn’t worth photographing, and the birds on the beach were the same-old, same-old.

Greenbury Point was much better, and I suspect I found enough variety to proclaim that migration has begun!
