Subject: [NHBirds] a great morning at Bohanen Farm (Hopkinton)
Hoping for a good batch of migrants, Unity and I explored Bohanen Farm in Hopkinton for about 3 hours this morning. About a mile down the road in the western portion, we came across a flurry of activity a little after 9:00 and ended up standing/sitting in this one spot for over an hour. Over that time we found 44 species, including 13 different warblers. Many of the latter were foraging near ground level less than 20' away, and we had a blast just waiting to see what would show up next. Full eBird stationary count below:
