Curlew Sandpiper - Seawall Beach, Maine

I had plans at Popham Beach this afternoon so I jumped at the opportunity to look for the Curlew Sandpiper that has been seen for the past few days at nearby Seawall Beach. It took a LOT of walking - four miles round-trip on Morse Mountain Road, at least another mile or two of wandering back and forth on the giant beach - but I finally found the bird with a group of twenty or so Semipalmated Sandpipers and a single Dunlin.

Life birds make sunburns itch like victory. Mediocre pictures below.

Also, the walk in on Morse Mountain Road was absolutely beautiful. I kept up a good pace to reach the beach, but I did manage to find my first-of-year Blackburnian Warbler (a few of them, actually) on the way in.

Congrats!! . . . life bird, huh? Wish I could have come with - although I bet you would have complained the whole time about the walk (4 MILES!!) and probably the cold too . . .
