Subject: [MASSBIRD] Fwd: Eastern Meadowlarks, Common Redpolls, Daniel Webster Wildlife Sanctuary, Nov 24, 2018

>
> I had good looks at the redpolls, and distant but convincing looks at the meadowlarks this afternoon at Daniel Webster. See eBird list below for details.
> I did not see Evening Grosbeaks there, but did not spend time waiting for them, as I had seen a pair earlier at nearby North River—South Shore Sanctuary.

>> Eastern Meadowlark 10 *Uncommon. Good count; minimum; probably 12-15 birds. Small flock 200 or 300 yards due east of Fox Hill Platform. Blackbird-sized, short-tailed, brownish; rose out of long grass as a ragged group and flew a short distance, with wings held mostly below horizontal, in distinctive meadowlark flight style; did this twice, in fairly quick succession, but not again, though I waited. Each time, 2 or 3 birds turned belly-up to the sun (in the west, behind me) and I could see the bright lemon-yellow breast well.
>> Red-winged Blackbird (Red-winged) 14
>> House Sparrow 2
