> 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.
