Along Main Road, many songsters included more Wood Thrushes, American Redstarts, Yellow and Black-throated Green Warblers, Great Crested Flycatcher and a single Blackburnian Warbler. And, for the first time this year, singing Savannah Sparrows were heard on North Cross Road and Ben Hale Road but still no Bobolinks.....it looks like I'll miss their arrival as I head for Ohio on Saturday.
American Redstart - male singing, Gill yard, Franklin Co., MA. May 9th, 2013.
This bird and two Northern Parulas spent the whole day singing high up in the maples surrounding the house and proved almost impossible to photograph.
Eastern Kingbird - one of two present, singing and displaying in the yard.
