Glad at least one pelagic came close enough and stuck around.
Also “commute” #230 (and Bonaparte’s Gull was #231)!
Phone dinged while I was on a checkin call this morning. Cliff: “if you’re out birding, hudsonian godwit at lower mill st pond at beaver brook”. “!!!” Realized I had a couple hours before anything urgent, so I sent a quick message saying I’ll be back in an hour and ran out.
Twenty five minutes later:
County 302, patch 180!
Didn’t manage a recording of the rail unfortunately. Last 2 patch bird day was back in 2013.
