A Dickcissel was hanging out in the berry (raspberry/etc) shrubs at Carter Hill Orchard in Concord this afternoon. This is the same side of the orchard as the viewing platform, but closer to the woods. This was a pale individual with just the slightest hint of yellow on the breast, or so it appeared to me in the late afternoon light. Perhaps the showers occurring early this evening will convince the bird to stay.
Please be alert that if you do chase this bird that the orchard does not open to the public until 9am. Please park in the designated hiker/dogwalker lot or in the area past the viewing platform, and out of the way of orchard equipment traffic.
