Blue-winged Teals - four today on the CT river at Unity Park, Turner's Falls, Franklin Co., MA. September 10th, 2015.
Common Nighthawks - two distant birds heading east, Barton Cove boat ramp, Gill, Franklin Co., MA.

Gadwall - continuing molting male, Unity Park, Turner's Falls, Franklin Co., MA. September 10th, 2015.
Later in the day, a quick check of Unity Park on a rainy, gloomy evening found the four Blue-winged Teal still present and Eric Huston scoping them out! Eric had mentioned seeing a fairly late nighthawk. Luckily for me, a quick stop at Barton Cove boat ramp found two Common Nighthawks heading east through the gloom at speed. It's getting quite late to see nighthawks locally though I think we still have a chance of seeing some stragglers through to the end of the month.
