Subject: [MASSBIRD] Pine Island - Dedham
Paul Peterson reports that he visited the Pine Island area in Dedham today.

You can enter the area from opposite Vine Rock Road where it meets River
View Road.

Take the Blue Heron/(blue blazes) Trail from that spot. Stay on the
trail and go over a board walk. Where there's a sign "no firearms" on a
tree, take a right off the Blue Heron Trail. Fifty yards down there
were 9 Rusty Blackbirds feeding on the right in the marshy creek.

Farther down on the trail there is a concrete building. Fifty yards
beyond that (keep water on your left) 6 Fox Sparrows feeding in the brush.

Also, he flushed a Woodcock. Also present were:

Seven Fish Crows

8 Common Mergansers

2 Hooded Mergansers

2 Bufflehead

1 Brown Creeper

Thanks to Paul for this report!
