This will be brief as I’m scrambling to get ready for a red eye plane ride tonight to Boston. Peter Gent and I, two of the senior members of Rock Dove Tours, drove out to the Pawnee NG today for the two longspurs. Mission accomplished.
Maine is an important trip for my big year. Target birds are Bicknell’s Thrush, Razorbill, Atlantic Puffin, Manx Shearwater, Great Shearwater and maybe-just maybe- a Red-billed Tropicbird. If all goes well I may detour at the end to see the Hooded Crow. Stay tuned
