You Win Some, You.....

Yellow-rumped Warbler on the marsh.

Trail to Scarborough Marsh,

Don scanning from the bridge,

The marsh where the European Golden-Plover wasn't.

....loose some. We went to see the European Golden-Plover we mentioned on Monday's blog post and came up empty. Others tried to see it on Sunday and Monday with no luck. The last time it was seen was on Saturday afternoon. When we got to Scarborough Marsh later on Monday, there were no birders there, just a few walkers, painters, people excercising their dogs and no one with binoculars. Not a good sign. But we looked anyway and enjoyed the beautiful marsh. Chasing rare birds is always a gamble. As we said, you win some, you loose some.
