Wompatuck State Park, Hingham - 4/28/2013

It was a pretty good trip. I think there must have been around 15 people, a good mix of SSBC & BBC members. Glenn d'Entremont recorded the numbers for me. Since the gates were locked we walked in from the parking lot across the street from the visitors center at 6:30AM and got back to the cars around 10:00AM, at which point Glenn had to leave. I then took some folks down to Holly Pond Loop Road and then onto Picture Pond. Here is his list, with my additions:

Canada Goose 5
Mallard 4 
Broad-winged Hawk 1 
Red-tailed Hawk 1 
Mourning Dove 2 
Red-bellied Woodpecker 5 
Downy Woodpecker 9 
Hairy Woodpecker 2
Eastern Phoebe 10 - There is a HUGE tree that was toppled over the winter and it sure looks like one of the Phoebes is going to nest on the overturned/upended roots, which I am pretty sure would be a very natural location.
Blue-headed Vireo 1 
Blue Jay 7 
Fish Crow 1 
Black-capped Chickadee 10 
Tufted Titmouse 12 - pair building nest in a hollow in the crotch of a white pine.
