At Burrage Pond this morning with my sister in law, we found 6 great blue herons 1 bald eagle, appeared to be first year 1 sandhill crane 2 or 3 greater yellowlegs 1 eastern kingbird 8 tree swallows 5? Common yellowthroat 1 hooded warbler - this bird was singing from an isolated chokecherry on a dike in the middle of the bogs. It briefly flew up to the top of a tall shrub and then departed. 15? Yellow warblers 6 song sparrows X red winged blackbirds 3 bobolinks - the first I remember seeing here 1 orchard oriole 3 baltimore orioles
Notable by their absence were marsh wrens and swamp sparrows.
