Fowl Meadow, Milton - 10/19/2013

Five people joined me for a walk through Fowl Meadow on October 19.  It was a bright sunny day with stunning foliage.  We walked the two miles out to Route 128, and returned via the somewhat parelleling trails that start with the unfinished cloverleaf for the the Route 95 extension through Fowl Meadow that never happened and ends back at the "crossroads."  The trees in places were dripping with yellow-rumped warblers.  Other migrants were ruby-crowned kinglets, 3 blue-headed vireos, 3 black-throated greens, a nicely handkerchiefed female black-throated blue eating blue berries.  Two rusty blackbirds were a nice plus.
