Confirmed bird sightings on the Outer Cape in the week preceding the Independent’s deadline on Tuesday, May 12, included the following, based on a report prepared by Mass Audubon’s Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary.
A Wilson’s Plover was found at Coast Guard Beach in Eastham.
A Summer Tanager was seen in Wellfleet.
Two Sandhill Cranes were reported over Longnook Beach in Truro.
A Pileated Woodpecker was seen flying along in North Truro on Monday but not since. And a King Rail and 3 American Bitterns were sighted elsewhere in North Truro.
And the bird watchers seem to have taken the week off in Provincetown, as there was only one reported sighting, a Glaucous Gull seen at Race Point. That can’t be the only bird in town right now.
