Dock fisherman's catch.
Flying over house at dusk. Large white egret black legs
Male Northern Cardinal
Black and white wings, no noticeable red on the head. Appeared to be a female Downy Woodpecker or Hairy Woodpecker. Didn't get a clear view of the bill size to differentiate.
Outside Morning Glory farm in Edgartown. Looks like a rose; thinking it's R. rugosa.
Another patron at the farm store confirmed this.
