Cape Ann

It was a cloudy, balmy day for our annual Cape Ann Trip led by Dan Berard. Sixteen members and friends participated and others joined us along the way to enjoy our highlights. Our best bird was Atlantic Puffin but the variety of alcids seen was memorable. The Snowy Owl perched on the roof of the hotel across the street from the Puffin find was special also.
