After that I headed over to the South Main Street Power Lines in hopes of picking up more new birds for my patch with Orange-crowned being top of the list. I'd see cars in the parking lot which struck me as odd because this place is normally devoid of people which makes it very birdy.
This appears to be an adult already heading into non-breeding plumage. I wouldn't notice the fishing hook and line underneath the gull until I blew this picture up on my screen and it would remind me of the time about a month ago Alan and I were at Wachusett and I got tangled up in some fishing line so gathered it all together to dispose of it responsibly to protect the birds and other wild life. I have no problems with those who fish and those who hunt but can't stand seeing things such as this as it often stems from people who don't do it responsibly and give the others a bad name, like hunters who hunt where they aren't supposed to (powerlines near homes) and fishermen who can't clean up their messes. :-(
Take care all.
