WIR 9/22-9/28

Wednesday 9/22: Checked the community gardens which were quiet.

Thursday 9/23: Prospect Hill had a Nashville, 2 Black-and-whites, first of fall Palm, a Swainson’s Thrush, and 2 Golden-crowned Kinglets.

Friday 9/24: Rock Meadow before work was pretty quiet beyond Lincoln’s and White-crowned Sparrows. At lunch, ended up at Gore Place for the first time in a long time. Lots of potential but with a truck driving around nothing much. Arlington Res after work had 10 Blue-winged Teal, 2 Shoveler, a Black-throated Blue Warbler, and 6 pipits.

Saturday 9/25: Joined the MBC walk at Horn Pond which didn’t have too much. Stopped at Waltham St on the way home, which had nothing. Cambridge Res a bit later was pretty quiet.

Sunday 9/26: Intended to start in Lincoln and then join the butterfly walk in Wayland. Luckily the emails with results on the walk came in before I went to bed, so I was aware I missed it but I continued as planned anyway. Farm Meadow had a Bobolink, couple Indigo Buntings, and lots of Savannah Sparrows but not much else. Lindentree was quiet. After wandering all over the Wayland Community Gardens, I finally found a single Bronze Copper on the way out and then had a surprise Pipevine Swallowtail back at the car.



Checked Flint’s Pond and Cambridge Res on the way home. Nothing at Flint’s, about the same as yesterday at the res (plus an egret and Greater Yellowlegs).

Monday 9/27: Purgatory Cove had about 100 Wood Ducks, a Green Heron, and a Killdeer.

Tuesday 9/28: Prospect Hill at lunch was pretty quiet.
