Moosehill Wildlife Sanctuary, Sharon - 4/24/2012

A quick spin around the Billings Farm Loop led by Glenn d'Entremont turned out to be quite slow bird wise. On the heels of the first significant rainfall in some time, the skies were fair with blustery conditions (47F, Moderate SSW wind). It was great to see the red maple swamp full of water! All 5 participants commented about the lack of "action",  meaning newly arriving spring migrants. Most of the standard resident birds were seen and we had 2 flocks of Double-crested Cormorants migrating overhead.

Complete list:

Wild Turkey  6
Double-crested Cormorant  47    2 flocks migrating
Mourning Dove  1
