MA - Wood Thrush - 05/07
It's amazing how approachable some birds will be if one just stands quietly in the woods. Wood Thrushes only arrived a few days ago (May 2nd/3rd) but already seem to be widespread and common. This bird was foraging just a few yards off the bike path in Amherst.
Also along the bike path on the 7th, Black-throated Blue and Chestnut-sided Warblers and a singing Indigo Bunting, plus good views of a Great Horned Owl. Another busy day locally with at least 7 Northern Parulas singing along North Whitney Street/Redgate Lane, two rather nice Magnolia Warblers, 3 Black-throated Greens and at least 30 Yellow-rumped Warblers.
