May 30 Montague Field Trip Report
Rains were light to moderate as Dayle Vanderwier led five people (Henderson Preserve) and four people (Clear Springs Preserve) bird-watching northeast of Montague this morning.
No cardinals or chickadees all day! No ducks either, though it was a good day for them. Of the fourteen species at Henderson, notable were Green Heron, Cedar Waxwing and Black-billed Cuckoo. Of the twelve species at Clear Springs, the Belted Kingfisher and a Magnolia Warbler were the highlights.
Of the three species outside the windows of the Harbor View Grille in Whitehall during lunch, best were the 12+ Chimney Swifts.
Despite the damp conditions, everyone had a good time!
Hope to see you on our summer field trips (see side bar for dates and places).
