Here are some nature notes from around York County, Maine:
- 1 Barrow's Goldeneye (adult male) in an open section of the Saco River below the Rt. 1 bridge between Biddeford and Saco
- 1 Peregrine Falcon perched on the MERC Smokestack, Biddeford
- 1 Spotted Sandpiper continuing along Ocean Ave., Biddeford Pool [these birds typically leave Maine and head south by the end of October]
- 1 Rough-legged Hawk (dark morph juvenile) hunting along Mile Stretch Rd., Biddeford Pool
- 1 Sharp-shinned Hawk, 2 Eastern Bluebirds, 2 American Robins, and ~20 Cedar Waxwings at UNE in Biddeford
- 1 Northern Shrike stopped by while I was shoveling out my driveway
- and, last, but not least, I last saw the long-staying Marbled Godwit in Biddeford Pool on 15 Dec
