Wompatuck State Park, May 28, 2015

On a warm morning, nine birders set off to explore the loop beyond Picture Pond toward the Aaron River Reservoir with high hopes for finding an Acadian Flycatcher. We returned along the power line where the possiblity of an Indigo Bunting or Prairie Warbler loomed large in the shrubby habitat.  Unfortunately none of those expectations were met but other nice species were noted and enjoyed.  The most interesting critter of the day hitchhiked along on my pantlegs for about 15 minutes and which I later identified as a Nessus Sphinx Moth.  Warbler activity was decidedly reduced along that route.
