Royelle MacKay and her daughter Julie were moving lobster gear off Cable Head aboard the Billie and Julie when they spotted a tiny stowaway on the boat’s washboard. The nuthatch, not your usual seafaring bird, flew off briefly but came back and landed again. The side cabin door was hooked open and the bird perched on top of it for a bit before flying down and landing on Julie’s hat, where it rested up for a bit before selecting a more sheltered spot in the cabin. “We see them offshore sometimes on a cloudy or foggy day,” Royelle said. “It seems like they get lost.” The MacKays live in Beach Point.
