Dear Massbirders,

15 birders joined last night's guest speaker, Laura Erickson, for a
beautiful fall morning of birding with the Brookline Bird Club. We almost
recorded a half century of species, with a nice mix of late migrants
(including a very late pewee), and early winter visitors (Horned Grebes).

eBird checklist below.

Good birding,
