High on the Hog
At long last, I'm back from Hog Island and the Family Birding Adventure. Great time with the kids, and some fun birding, including (of course) the obligatory boat ride out to Eastern Egg Rock to see the Atlantic Puffins. This time it was really, really foggy, so we struggled to see beyond a hundred yards out, but we still got close looks at puffins and some good if short looks at Roseate, Arctic, Common and a single Black Tern. If you haven't been to Hog Island yet, there's still time this summer to join in on some of the fun. I'll be back up there for the Audubon chapter leadership workshop the second week of August. Can't wait to be back on the Hog!
