Scott's Landing-field trip. Highlights were Black-billed Cuckoo seen and heard well by all participants. Unfortunately only the other co- leader and myself saw a Red-shouldered Hawk fly by from the parking lot after the other participants had left. This is a rare sighting this time of the year hear in Maine. Good times!
