WIR 8/24-8/30

Wednesday 8/24: BBN had a bunch of redstarts and lots of peep.

Thursday 8/25: Took a bit to convince myself, but the Snowy Egret was out at Great Meadows. Lots around, nothing too exciting beyond a couple Bronzed Tiger Beetles otherwise.

Friday 8/26: Redstarts but not much else at Lone Tree Hill. Lots of peep at the duck ponds.

Saturday 8/27: Started at Lynnfield Marsh where there were lots of shorebirds and a flyover Dickcissel. Continued to Great Meadows.

Sunday 8/28: Started at Millennium and Brook Farm hoping to fill a couple migrant warbler holes on my Suffolk list. Only able to get a Black-and-white though. Decided to not go down to Great Pond after (which seemed to be a good decision) and went to Hobbs Brook instead. Semis, semis, and more semis plus a few yellowlegs.

Monday 8/29: BBN had 3 Great Egrets and a GW Teal. Redstart was the only warbler even with a good bit of effort at the chickadees.

Tuesday 8/30: Didn’t get the Yellow-crowned on the ‘commute’ list, otherwise about the same at Great Meadows, Pileated and Peregrine were nice, as was Swift River Cruiser.
