This morning at 9:45, after the heavy overnight rain, bird activity was high. A Louisiana Waterthrush was singing along the small brook by our meadow edge; it is the third time in my 15 springs here. Also had a Canada Warbler, several Magnolia Warblers ,male and female, a couple Chestnut-sided and an American Redstart. A flock of Bluejays flew over; there were about 30, plus more around the yard. They just appeared in numbers this past weekend. FOY since Saturday: Scarlet Tanager, Baltimore Oriole, White-throated Sparrow, Red-eyed Vireo, the warblers, Veery, Yellow-rump Warbler, Song Sparrow (Only been back in-state for 10 days)
One local rain report from a friend in Dorchester was 6 inches, after a thunderstorm system lasted over 2 hours.
