Highlights of the Week

On Tuesday, I observed a Long-billed Dowitcher, a White-rumped Sandpiper, and 3 Red Knots along the Basket Island Causeway.

On Friday, I photographed a Killdeer, a Wilson's Snipe, and a Dickcissel continuing at a horse farm in Kennebunkport.

And several days this week, I noticed Striped Skunk tracks in the sand at Hills Beach in Biddeford.

Wild Edible of the Week

I gathered and ate wild Cranberries from a patch that Jenny and I stumbled upon in late September.

Nature Challenge of the Week (for you, the reader)
