Notes about birds, birding and travel from the Pioneer Valley in Western Massachusetts.

Moose - Central Quabbin, Franklin Co., MA. Highlight of today's late afternoon visit to the Quabbin.
Didn't bird seriously today but a neighborhood walk produced a couple of feeding flocks, one in Wildwood Cemetery and one on North Whitney Street, Amherst. Both flocks contained reasonable numbers of Yellow-rumped and Magnolia Warblers, and apparent migrant Red-eyed Vireos with about 8 together in the cemetery. A Tennessee Warbler on North Whitney Street was the pick and my first locally this year.
