3 New Birds....a Colony find.

I birded this morning with Alan Marble. Goal was to find our yearly Worm-eating Warbler in Uxbridge. Others had him the other day and I have now failed 4x. He was found after my second try and 2x after he was found I failed to locate him. However I did get to add a Red-eyed Vireo and Common Yellowthroat..(finally). I was hoping for Black-billed Cuckoo but not yet! On the way home from Rhode Island and 3 min from home I found a Bank Swallow colony. I was able to get a photo of one. I had found Bank Swallows already this year but snatching a photo of one among many other birds was hard. I had driven all the way to Sterling to a previous colony but they weren't there. This is a pretty cool find!

I am currently in need of a few birds. So if you are reading this (does anyone even read this?) and spot one you can email me at (it comes instantly to my phone).
