WIR 8/8-8/14

Wednesday 8/8: Walked edge of Forest Grove to the landfill without much. No shorebirds at Purgatory Cove.

Thursday 8/9: North end of the Cambridge Res. Numbers down a bit, 1 Lesser Yellowlegs, 3 Semipalmated Plovers, etc.

Friday 8/10: Didn’t get out but two quick passes of Hardy Pond had nothing.

Saturday 8/11: Cambridge Res: nothing. North end: about the same. Duck ponds: nothing.

Sunday 8/12: North end Cambridge Res: less than previous days (no Semi Sandpipers).

Monday 8/13: Osprey and Zabulon Skipper at Rock Meadow.



Osprey was the first new bird for the patch in 2 months. Zabulon was a lifer.

Tuesday 8/14: BBN: tanager, redstart, couple Warbling Vireos, interesting oriole that I eventually decided was just a Baltimore. Heard-only Red-breasted Nuthatch was another year tick for the patch (everything but the tanager was at the farthest point possible so of course I didn’t have time to track it all down).
