Welcome to my birding home page. I'm an aging software geek living in Newburyport, MA. The main goal of this site is providing up to date information about the birds of Plum Island, Essex County, Massachusetts. Use the Recent Sightings link to see a list of the latest bird sightings from the island. For an overall view of Plum Island bird status check the Overall Quarter-Month Status (Systematic Order) page. To see the same data sorted by “commonness” check the (Sightings Order) version of this page. Use the 2013 Quarter-Month Status link to see a status summary of the birds on Plum Island in 2013. There are links to similar pages for 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012.
