Subject: [MASSBIRD] Today at Drumlin Farm
There has been some movement of birds recently. We have had a one-legged solitary sandpiper for several days at the Deer Pen Pond. A clay-colored sparrow was in the corn. Increased number of savannah sparrows. Palm warblers are starting to arrive and a pine warbler was surprisingly on the compost pile with the bluebirds. Two rusty blackbirds were near the Ice Pond. Thanks to Connie, Amy, Andy, Isabella and Isabella for birding with me today. Looking forward to this weekend's cold front and hopefully an influx of migrants.
