Willow Brook Farm Preserve; Saturday, May 26, 2012, 8AM
Delightful birding marked the day for eight of us on a sunny day in the 70's with very light winds. Highlights included singing Indigo Buntings in the meadow, A pair of Scarlet Tanagers foraging overhead, Eastern Bluebirds working the meadow, and a succession of Great Blue Herons flying over the swamp as seen from the observation tower.

Wompatuck State Park, May 24, 2012, 6:30am
Gorgeous weather in the 70's with little wind made the last of these Thursday morning forays a delight. Although the consensus is that migration is over, nine of us enjoyed tracking down many summer residents at Gates 8 and 9, South Pleasant Street, Picture Pond, and Holly Pond. Veerys, Black-and-white Warblers, and Worm-eating Warblers were most cooperative for excellent looks. A Winter Wren kept one hop ahead of us along a stream and a Cuckoo on a high branch kept us guessing about his identity.
