A WESTERN REEF HERON was reported Friday morning early at Frisbee's Wharf on Kittery Point. By the time I got there at 2:30pm it had not been seen since 9:30am. During the afternoon and evening, up until sunset, a variety of birder (probably 30 or more) searched for the bird, without success.
I stayed over and returned to the wharf this morning at 6:20am, but without any great optimism. A few other birders were there as well. About 6:45am the bird was found on Fisherman's Island - YES!!
A few pictures are at www.tailsofbirding.net - Also a link to NHBird with better photos.
It followed the same pattern today as yesterday - around just about morning high tide - then gone.
