Tonight at Barn Island two eastern kingbirds seen alternating off one perch while flycatching on the wing. Only a handful of shorebirds seen and heard due to the weather and visibility around a quarter mile. Numerous veerys and I note that I counted dozens in Pachuag Forest this weekend so we're seeing veerys in good numbers once again this season. Possible for bank swallows but I couldn't get a definitive look. Abundant songbirds, it's a jungle out there.
