Now here is a bird that makes a lot of noise. It is a very distinctive call and there are dozens of them around Cedar Beach this year. It took me several hours today to figure out what species they are.
The Audubon Society Field Guide is concise and spot on. This is a pretty boring bird on the ground but it is very entertaining in flight… both by how it looks and how it sounds. It was the first thing we heard out here on the hook this morning.
