Saturday 9/26: Yellow-rump and 120 cormorants over Danehy, Rusty Blackbird and 15 Wood Duck at Alewife, Blackpolls and wigeon at Arlington Res, nothing at Hobbs Brook, and nothing at Waltham St.

Sunday 9/27: Started at Great Meadows. Virginia Rail on the path, pipit overhead, a few shorebirds and ducks, 3 coots, etc. Nothing at all in the trees though. Kaveski was quiet around noon and a quick stop at Hobbs Brook added a couple more pipits and not much else.

Tuesday 9/29: Only had time for a quick stop at Round Hill. Lincoln’s Sparrow in the gardens and a flyover Pileated were about it.9/
