"Monday Morning's Back Bay Birding by Boat tour aboard the Osprey went swimmingly (though not literally!!). All 17 participants enjoyed great looks at Glossy Ibis, Black Skimmers and egrets galore. We had up close and personal looks at a Northern Rough-winged Swallow that almost came in the boat, along with great looks at American Oystercatchers. A Belted Kingfisher entertained everyone as we prepared to dock."
