WIR 4/18-4/24

Wednesday 4/18: Lot 1 had a Field Sparrow.

Thursday 4/19: Too snowy(!). Palm and some cormorants were about all I could see at the res. Did finally get a Rough-winged Swallow at Heard Pond on the way home.

Friday 4/20: Nobscot had a sapsucker, Hermit Thrush, couple towhees, etc.

Saturday 4/21: Joined the MBC walk at Horn Pond, which was quiet beyond the kinglets. Drove a bunch of loops around Ipswich not seeing White-faced Ibis. Did run to Gloucester in between and had a sapsucker and Merlin.

Sunday 4/22: Looped Hanscom which wasn’t too bad. First Sharpie for Bedford plus 4 or more kestrels, a meadowlark (singing just slightly out of place which had me baffled for a minute), lots of Hermit Thrushes, etc. Full loop of Great Meadows had a loon (first one I’ve had on the water there I think), PB Grebe, and plenty of the usual. Brief run around the duck ponds had FOY Cabbage White. Kinglet singing in the yard early was nice.

Monday 4/23: Field Sparrow, Kestrel, etc at Heard.

Tuesday 4/24: Winter Wren(s), Barn Swallow, Gnatcatcher, Mourning Cloak, not much else new at BBN.
