Confirmed bird sightings on the Outer Cape in the week preceding the Independent’s due date on Tuesday, March 14 consisted of the following, based upon a report prepared by Mass Audubon’s Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary.
Sightings at Race Point in Provincetown today consisted of 3 Pacific Loons, 15 Common Murres, 450 Razorbills, 35 Black-Legged Kittiwakes, 60 Iceland Gulls, a Glaucous Gull, and 2 Common Redpolls.
There was a Pine Siskin in Wellfleet.
And considering that no one saw any birds in Truro or Eastham, let’s count this one from our next door next-door neighbors: The initially Ospreys and Piping Plovers were reported on Cape Cod today, consisting of an Osprey attempting to recover its nest from a set of Bald Eagles at Cedar Pond in Orleans.
