Hi, I birded this place (formerly Broad Meadows) in Quincy from 1:00-5:00 on Saturday, I had to wait for the lady in the tractor to leave before I entered the adjacent D.P. W. yard. I was rewarded there with THREE WHITE-CROWNED AND ONE LINCOLN'S SPARROW ! Another White-crowned Sparrow way down by the footbridge gave me four. The Willet was continuing for about three weeks now!Â

P.S. There was a LINCOLN'S SPARROW yesterday at Sunset Lake in Braintree near the skateboard park. Also, there were sixteen Hooded Merganser. Also, I had my F.O.F. Hermit Thrush at Ricchardi Reservoir in Braintree/Randolph.
