Some nice migrants today in Lowell Cemetery including a couple of late

Comments: After a slow morning on Plum Island I took some time to walk
and drive all around Lowell Cemetery on a warm, humid and breezy afternoon
with overcast skies. I ran into a couple nice pockets of southbound
migrants among the lingering breeders and residents. The pair of Scarlet
Tanagers were a nice surprise as that is not a typical fall species for the
27 species
