WIR 1/29-2/4

Wednesday 1/29: Very quiet at Kaveski and Meriam’s. Had enough time to check Pelham Island Rd and there was a nice adult eagle sitting by the river.

Thursday 1/30: Fox Sparrow, RC Kinglet, and Yellow-rump at Falzone. Eagle over 128.

Friday 1/31: Riverwalk was quiet, did finally get commute Great Black-backed Gull. Stopped for a few seconds at Cronin’s and had almost as many birds there as I did in 45 minutes earlier.

Saturday 2/1: Dunback was quiet. Sapsucker but no phoebe at Upper Vine Brook. No thrasher or much different at Fresh Pond.

Sunday 2/2: Started at Deer Island. No murres, just 3 Razorbills among the usual stuff. Continued up Revere/Lynn/Swampscott with no interesting gulls before heading to the Eared Grebe in Beverly. Took quite a while before it turned up fairly close. Continued through Magnolia to Jodrey where we had 3+ Thick-billed Murres and 3+ Dovekies along with the Black-headed Gull.

Monday 2/3: Nothing different at BBN.

Tuesday 2/4: Had to drive into Boston so stopped at the Fenway gardens for a couple. Fox Sparrow, couple Red-wings, lots of sparrows.
