Willow Brook Farm Preserve May 27, 2017

Seven Birders enjoyed their walk through the well maintained Wildlands Trust Property, on this really pleasant morning.
We had hoped for some rarer  Flycatchers moving through, but had no luck on those.
Highlight of our walk were two Barred Owls duetting close to the Tower. They were well heard, but never seen over a period of more than 20 minutes.
Amazing were both the visual on one of three Black-billed Cuckoo and the later audio of two Yellow billed Cuckoos. Impossibly difficult to see were the numerous Blue-winged Warblers which are  a specialty at this property.
