A steady few days

It's been a relatively quiet period with no new arrivals although the weather has made birding difficult. The highlight has been the first calender year male Northern Harrier showing well between the Reservoir and Lapa and the Northern Parula at the Lighthouse Valley. There's also a few Red-eyed Vireos around and a Buff-bellied Pipit.
