Highlights of the Week
After a few failed attempts to find the rare Little Egret (who has been sighted off-and-on in the Portland area since 11 July), I finally locked eyes on the bird roosting with 9 Snowy Egrets off the north meadow at Gilsland Farm in Falmouth.
I observed many boreal forest birds, including White-winged and Red Crossbill, Pine Siskin, Boreal Chickadee, Gray Jay, and Yellow-bellied and Olive-sided Flycatcher during a 2-day, 1-night trip to Piscataquis County.
Wild Edible of the Week
I snacked on various wild Blueberries in both southern and central Maine.
Nature Challenge of the Week (for you, the reader)
Locate 2 damselfly species at a freshwater wetland.
