Subject: [MASSBIRD] Plum Island List from Friday
I spent Friday at Plum Island, on the refuge or Sandy Point the whole time. I ended the day with 102 species including 19 warblers. Nothing extraordinary for the time of year but good totals for various migrants. Singing Purple Finches were everywhere I looked. When I arrived in the morning the wind had a bitter edge and birds were keeping down in the bushes but by mid morning things started to pick up. There were a lot of migrants present but you had to work to get them.
