This afternoon at the Surrenden Farm fields the first bird I saw was a male Kestrel, being mobbed by 4 Blue Jays. Later an immature Merlin was perched up high at the opposite edge of the same field. For the complete list and photos, here's my eBird report: https://ebird.org/massaudubon/checklist/S62673650 Another nice surprise was a porcupine eating grass out in one of the fields. Here's a few pictures of the animal: https://www.flickr.com/photos/tmurray74/ Tom MurrayGroton, Ma.
