WIR 4/6-4/12

Wednesday 4/6: Nothing unexpected at Arlington Res.

Thursday 4/7: More of the same at Forest Grove, eagle or two and a kingfisher the best.

Friday 4/8: Nothing really came down in the rain, 2 Ring-necks at the res, nothing at Nine Acre or School St, PB Grebe at Hardy.

Saturday 4/9: Started at Station Landing, Savannah was probably the most interesting although a Fish Crow going over was a patch bird. Over to Earhart, not too much down near the casino (other than a hoped for Blue-winged Teal flyby). Good to catch up with Bob at the other end, no birds to see though. Continued to Revere Beach where one Manx put on a reasonable show before it started raining. Took a quick look for the Dickcissel nearby but it was pouring. Rain stopped by the time I got to the Mystic Lakes so pulled in briefly, nothing much there. Afternoon check of the res right after another set of showers had the first cormorants there for the year but not much else.

Sunday 4/10: Chased a waterthrush along the Charles but only found FOY Palm. Continued to Chandler Pond (FOY RC Kinglet and Rough-winged Swallow) and Chestnut Hill Res (couple Hermit Thrush). Quick stops at Newton City Hall and the duck ponds didn’t have anything. A few Ring-necks on the res in the afternoon.

Monday 4/11: Couple RC Kinglets and a Pine Warbler at Falzone, Palm at West Meadow.

Tuesday 4/12: Lot of waxwings and a kingfisher at Cookson, ten night-herons and another kingfisher at the square.
