Squeezing in Some Birding in Yarmouth, ME

When Mom came to visit me last week I had no idea it would turn out to be a week long adventure! After visiting the staircases on Monday I drove her to Maine on Tuesday to visit her cousin. More like sisters than cousins, they had a fun day together. We all went out to eat at Day’s Seafood Takeout on Route 1 in Yarmouth, ME. While waiting for our seafood to cook, I stood on the banks of the Cousin’s River trying to see some birds while Mom and her cousin sat at a picnic table and looked at old photos.

Since it was the middle of the day I did not see a lot of birds but when the osprey flew overhead and came so close it was quite thrilling! I managed to squeeze some more birding in later on in the day. More blog posts to follow! As you can well imagine things are getting busy as the moving day draws near. Still, I have managed to squeeze in a few moments of birding here and there and will post what I can before I move. Now that I have a new Acer Notebook I hope to keep in touch as I drive across the country with the pets and my birding buddy and best friend, Kathryn. I know there will be times when I am too tired or too busy to get online but I will try to stay in touch with you all as much as possible!
