WIR 8/10-8/16

Wednesday 8/10: Great Meadows was up to 13 egrets and 5 ibis but not too much else. Pulled in at Elm Brook for a few seconds and had a Pec among a flock of Least flying around and 2 more egrets.

Thursday 8/11: Falzone and the West Meadow didn’t have much.

Friday 8/12: White-rump at Hobbs Brook, nothing at the res or Hardy.

Saturday 8/13: Started at Nobscot, BW Warbler, BW Hawk, bunch of hummingbirds about it. Plus a sleeping raccoon. Raymond Reservation next, 3 of the gallinules showed well plus a bunch of shorebirds and raptors. Heard Pond had a Great Egret, nothing too exciting at Heard Farm.

Sunday 8/14: Usual at Draw Seven and Earhart, lots of Semipalmated Sandpipers but not much else for shorebirds and no passerine migrants. Short stop at Winthrop Beach in order to finally get a Least Tern for the year turned out to be a two hour vigil with Soheil, lots of Semis but not much else.

Monday 8/15: Nothing much at Lindentree, marsh wasn’t too accessible and looked pretty dry too.

Tuesday 8/16: Pretty much the same as last time at Weston Station Pond. Few Leasts were new but otherwise not much.
