Confirmed bird sightings on the Outer Cape in the week preceding the Independent’s deadline on Tuesday, March 31, included the following, based on a report prepared by Mass Audubon’s Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary.
We know they’re not birds, but North Atlantic Right Whales have been consistently visible this week from Race Point in Provincetown.
Bird sightings at Race Point included 25 Iceland Gulls, 140 Red-throated Loons, 13 Great Cormorants, 2 Short-eared Owls, and a Peregrine Falcon.
This week’s report from the folks at Audubon did not include any other details on bird sightings in our four outermost towns. Come on people — birdwatching! You can do it and keep your social distance, too.
If you have questions about these sightings, or want to report a sighting, call the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary at 508-349-2615 or send an email to [email protected].
