The fence at Ward Hill

Ali and Pipit compare their lists for eBird.

Thirteen Mad Birders celebrated September and the joys of autumn songbird migration by birding where the birds always are, on WARD HILL in Duxbury.  Thanks go to Chris and Fred “Pipit” Pratt for hosting the walk.  A beautiful late summer morning with blue skies greeted the Mad Birders as did seven different species of warblers and three separate species of vireos.  The Philadelphia Vireo was very cooperative and was a life bird for one of the birders.
