An early morning visit to Upinngil Farm, Gill produced a nice flock of about 35 American Pipits feeding close to the road in a corn stubble field. Although pipits are fairly regular on passage through the fields of Northfield, Gill and Montague they're often difficult to observe closely so this was a real treat!
American (Buff-bellied) Pipit- Anthus rubescens rubescens. About 35 present in the fields across from Upinngil Farm, Gill, Franklin Co., MA. October 18th, 2015.
