Life on the beach at Parker River National Wildlife Refuge and occasional other birding adventures and, of course, piping plovers.

Besides being an engineering marvel in its time, the Lawrence Dam is right next to a huge crow roost. The other day, I saw a Common Raven hanging out with the crows. Alas, I was not able to get a photo (dam photo was taken yesterday, Common Raven sighting was Monday afternoon). The other cool thing I noticed at the dam, was the Herring Gulls seemingly joyriding on the current. They'd float along toward the dam, take flight just before they got to the dam, fly back upriver, and do it all over again.
