Acadian Flycatcher - May 28th
Acadian Flycatcher - This singing male was making the most of the sunshine on this rather cool day. Quabbin Park, May 28th.
After yesterday's muggy conditions, today's cooler, clearer weather was most welcome. Highlight of the day was this Acadian Flycatcher returning for another summer in Quabbin Park. Alder Flycatchers are also more widespread now with birds at Ware, Hardwick and UMass, Amherst today. Also in Hardwick, a female Blackpoll Warbler (a male in Quabbin Park) and a singing Blue-winged Warbler.
We still have hopes for more late season migrants.
