Hi Massbirders, A group of 17 of us birded McLaughlin Woods in Boston this morning. During the official one-hour Brookline Bird Club walk we encountered 42 species with 13 kinds of warbler and some odds and ends like a continuing Yellow-bellied Sapsucker. At the conclusion of the walk, I continued to bird the area with some of the group and we were treated to additional species like Scarlet Tanager, Northern Waterthrush, Veery, Canada and Blackpoll Warblers and some improved looks at Wilson's and Black-throated Blue Warblers.
PS- for those on this morning's walk who would like me to share the eBird checklist with you, send me a quick email and I'll take care of that.
