There was a Gray-cheeked Thrush feeding out on Florrie's Path (by the river) in Nahanton Park, Newton this morning around 9am. Seen well. Followed it along the trail past where the large tree is down. Also Least Flycatchers calling from the lower gardens, Magnolia and Wilson's Warblers.
Yesterday at Mt Auburn, there was a great wave of Swainson's Thrushes - I saw 9 while only covering part of the cemetery, along with a single Veery.
I was up at Plum Island on Sunday morning, and there were relatively low numbers of migrants, apart from a decent pocket of warblers at Hellcat. But down at Sandy Point, feeding in the wrack line along with about 100 swallows, there was an Eastern Kingbird, a Killdeer, Robins, Grackles and RWBs, and three Yellow Warblers. Beautiful sight to see them feeding out on the beach.
