Birding with Stiles Thomas

Made a quick trip up to see Stiles and Lillian Thomas in Newburyport, Mass., and was lucky to go birding with Stiles at the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge on nearby Plum Island.

Among the highlights (besides being with Stiles) were Bald Eagle, Northern Harrier, Pied-billed Grebe and Hermit Thrush. We had 37 species on Monday morning.

(Not sure Stiles wanted to have his photo taken, but he was wearing a State Line Hawk Watch cap, so I couldn't resist.

He said to be sure to say hi to everybody.
