I decided to go to the South Power Lines in Millbury this evening because sometimes evening birding can be just as eventful as morning birding, but you have to rely more on your eyes than your ears. Prairie Warbler perched quietly in some brambles.

Sunday Evening Birding and Other Weekend Nature Finds
Want to upload all of this now because it's time for me to clean out my photos to make room for more!
A Northern Flicker enjoying the first sun of the day.
Two of many (I get up to 20 at once!) of Cedar Waxwings coming to get the first ripened Mull berries from the tree in my yard. I get many species of birds eating the berries from this tree every summer, but the Cedar Waxwings seem to like them the most and will spend hours in my yard gobbling them up.
Posing for the camera.
A Red Eft (terrestrial form of the Spotted Newt) found along the path of one of the atlas blocks we went to yesterday. There were quite a few of these on the path which caused me to look before I stepped which is difficult to do while birding!
An unidentified birds nest found at the other atlas block.
