Breeding Bird Atlas- Prescott

I spent the morning working three blocks for the breeding bird atlas on Prescott Peninsula including the blocks of Shutesbury 8 and 9 and Winsor Dam 1. I covered about 11 miles in about 5 hours. I will include the total list for the morning. Highlights included a Ruffed Grouse w/ two fledglings, a continuing Cerulean Warbler and lots of birds carrying food or feeding recent fledglings. Some birds continue to collect nest material. Also some nice varieties of butterflies around as the sun warmed things up.
