Back Bay Birding by Boat - Sunday, October 5th, 2014

CMBO's "Back Bay Birding by Boat" aboard the M.V. Osprey. A low tide drove us to Nummy's Island, where a good number of Tricolored Herons were out and about. Also notable were the scads of Sanderlings hugging the mudflats, and the Caspian Tern showing off his good side to the crowd. Leaders: David Lord, Carrie Bell, and Joe Demko.
