Subject: [MASSBIRD] Waterthrushes, etc - New Salem

This morning at Jonathan‚~@~Ys Bridge on Fay Rd there were 2 very vocal Louisiana and 1 Northern Waterthrush singing repeatedly within 20yds of each other. The 2 Louisiana‚~@~Ys also went at each physically for a while. While I was watching this two Broad-wing Hawks copulated in the tall pines next to swamp.
Elsewhere in town, 2 Red-necked Grebes (one in beautiful breeding plumage), 3 Bufflehead and an Osprey at Gate 35 and there are still 26 Ring-necked Ducks lingering at Branch Bridge Rd.
