I started the day in Millbury again birding Martha Deering WMA. I was able to get a better photo of the Black-throated Green Warbler. I also found a Magnolia Warbler. Just like with the Black-throated Green Warbler this Magnolia was in the same location as the year prior...to the date! Amazing. Unfortunately a Blue-winged Warbler wanted to chase it off before I was able to photograph it.
I then was alerted that the Red-headed Woodpecker had been present all morning. I rushed to Sterling and was immediately greeted by its call before I even got out the car. I was also able to get its photo! Also in Marsha's yard was a Northern Parula I was able to get a record shot of! I wanna thank her so much for allowing myself and other birder's to be on her property! Only took me 5 tries!
I left her house and headed to Sutton to try for Grasshopper Sparrow. Took about 10 minutes and one started calling and popping up!
I was riding the good luck wave to Rice City Pond. I was hoping for Worm-eating Warbler. Negative. I hopped on over to River Bend Farm where I was able to get 3 Orchard Orioles.
Lastly I stopped at St. Phillips Cemetery in Grafton and snapped a horrible digiscoped photo of a Green Heron.
Then at home...well tragedy.
