Subject: [MASSBIRD] Daniel Boone Park, May 19, 2017
> Daniel Boone Park, Ipswich
> May 19, 2017 6:45 AM - 8:30 AM
> Protocol: Traveling
> 0.5 mile(s)
> Comments: I returned to Boone Park this morning and did well.
> Highlights were another (or the same) black-billed cuckoo as yesterday's,
> another Canada warbler, a blackpoll, another indigo bunting, two
> Swainson's thrushes (after hearing one sing at my house), and a
> GRAY-CHEEKED THRUSH. Pam Low joined me near the end of my walk and saw
> the GC and SW thrushes with me.
> 33 species; partial list:
>
> Black-billed Cuckoo 1 heard more distantly today
> Red-bellied Woodpecker 1
> Great Crested Flycatcher 2
> Red-eyed Vireo 5
> House Wren 3
> Veery 1
> Gray-cheeked Thrush 1 This bird was with one of the Swainson's
> thrushes but lacked any buffy/olive on the face. Rather, its face was
> plain gray. It was every bit as big as the SWTH, and there was no trace
> of reddish on the tail. Pam Low and I had excellent looks at both birds
> as they were side-by-side on the dirt road. This was one of the best
> looks I've ever had at a GCTH. Unfortunately, unlike the SWTH, it did not
> sing.

> Swainson's Thrush 2 Both sang; the other one was at the top of the
> hill.
> Gray Catbird 10
> Ovenbird 5
