Myles Standish State Forest in the Evening - 6/11/2014

A quick note regarding the (6/11/14) Whip-poor-will walk. A real surprise were two flyover EVENING GROSBEAKs alerting us to their presence by their call; the lead bird obviously an adult male and the second bird either a female or young. The late afternoon/early evening light lit up the male as they flew by at maybe 500 feet heading SSE.

YELLOW-BILLED CUCKOO 1-this bird was calling when we arrived and after walking the fields the bird was calling again. We were able to call it out for a brief view. Uncommon in the barrens.
Whip-poor-will 11
Fish Crow 1-the crow of choice in the barrens
Brown Thrasher 1
Prairie Warbler 3
