Robin's Birds

Birdwatching in Western Massachussets

Robin’s Trips

On January 28th, I went to Parker River National Wildlife Refuge on Plum Island in Massachusetts! I was hoping to see the Snowy Owls. I did not see them, but I saw a rare American Bittern and other pretty birds as well as an interesting mystery creature!

I finally DID see the Snowy and more at Salisbury Beach on February 12th!

I went back to Plum Island to try and see the Snowy Owls again before they migrated back to the Arctic. I did not see them, but I saw SO many beautiful birds and many of them were firsts for me! Here is my checklist with lots more photos! https://ebird.org/checklist/S105730443

I went to visit with family on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina. The birding was amazing! Many songbirds and wading birds stop by here to fuel up and rest on their spring migration route. Others remain on this island to breed. It was difficult to choose which pictures to share as there were just SO MANY beautiful birds! I decided to share the birds that we usually can’t see in Western Mass.
