Dawn and she'd stick around so the three of us birded.
Another great photo of Alan's which was the Least Sandpiper.
We'd also be lucky enough to spot the Virginia Rail nearby.
Before it lurked back into hiding!
I had to head to Home Depot today and decided to go to the one in Shrewsbury to allow me to bird a couple spots in Wetborough with one of them being Sueasco where I'd spot one of the two Brown Thrasher's as soon as I got out of my car. I'd have him right where I wanted for a photo until a large poodle came barreling down the path barking away which scared the thrasher back into cover where he is in this picture. Welcome to spring in Westborough! Seriously think these folks walk their dogs more than any other in Worcester county as the place would be packed with them.
Next would be Mill Pond where I wouldn't see much except two Canada Geese including the funky looking one above. At first I thought it was my eyes with the sun and then I thought hybrid but it never gave me that vibe so am thinking it's a little leucistic at the top of the head.
Which of course I never did so figure it's another case of "wishful thinking" on my part! I did see a butter butt on a horizontal branch with moss and there'd by dozens of tiny, flying insects around which the bird was inhaling! I'd look up a half glass more and right along side it would be a Savannah Sparrow making it a first for me to have these two birds together in one view which was nice considering I've never seen a Savannah behaving more like a warbler!
And of course, there'd be quite a few Palm Warblers like the one above.
Take care all.
