WIR 4/23-4/29

Wednesday 4/23: Nothing new at Arlington Res although I barely was halfway around before it started raining.

Thursday 4/24: Nothing much at Hardy or the res.

Friday 4/25: Blue-headed Vireo and not much else at BBN.

Saturday 4/26: Was planning on waiting out the rain but lots of western/central Mass reports got me out late morning. Nothing new at Hardy. Four scaup started things off at the res. Nothing at the first opening but a few blobs further down were enough to get out the scope. The first one was a Long-tailed Duck and at least 5 others were Horned Grebes! Plus another 4 scaup.

5 Horned Grebes and a Long-tailed Duck


Continued to Flint’s and Heard Ponds but nothing beyond swallows at either.

Sunday 4/27: Tern and other stuff.

Monday 4/28: Prospect Hill: ravens looked pretty big in the nest, 5 deer, not a whole lot else.

Tuesday 4/29: First Chimney Swifts at Purgatory Cove but not too much else.
