Louisiana Waterthrush - Barton Cove, Gill, Franklin Co., MA. April 29th, 2015.
Waterbirds were few on the cove but a Common Goldeneye lingers along with a Common Loon and at least five Ring-necked Ducks.
Common Goldeneye - female, Barton Cove, Gill, Franklin Co., MA. April 29th, 2015.
Starting to get late for this species in Franklin County.
A bigger surprise, especially given the calm conditions, was the presence of at least 25 American Pipits in a pasture off North Cross Road and a Greater Yellowlegs foraging in a puddle off Main Road just north of the intersection with North Cross. Frustratingly, I didn't have time to bird this morning.....all of these were more or less incidental sightings but it sure looked like a good morning to be out.....wish I could have done more.

What I assume was the same bird was on the same pool on April 26th.
