It was a great day on Sachuest Point. The weather was above freezing for the first time in 2 months and the birds were everywhere. We didn't get to see the Short eared Owl but we did have great looks at the Northern Harrier. We also saw Cardinal, Robin, House Sparrow, Bluejay, American Crow, Mockingbird, Chickadee, DAFFY, oops I mean American Black Duck, Starling, Brandt Goose, Common Goldeneye, Harlequin Duck, Common Eider, Bufflehead, Horned Grebe, Common Loon (one eating a very large fish), Red Breasted Merganser, Ring billed Gull, Herring Gull, Greater Black back Gull, Mallard, Double Crested Cormorant, Canada Geese, American Wigeon, White winged Scoter and Red tailed Hawk on the way out.
Our journey ended with lunch at Nancy's dads house, and at that point everyone was hungry and as usual, there was a lot to eat! In case you missed the mushroom recipe - here it is:
mushrooms, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, olive oil, minced garlic, and a little water, cook it all together till mushrooms are soft - enjoy!
And in case you missed the whole trip - you missed a good one! Hope to see you next time!
