A great list of birds! I went birding a few weeks ago on Cape Cod with a group of birders. One of the fellas knows you- I can't remember his name :/

Hi Dawn, I think that was John Galvani. He and wife are staying on the Cape. Good to know you guys met and birded together. Hope you saw lots of good birds.
