Breeding Bird Atlas...again.

Ruffed Grouse, Central Quabbin
Evening Grosbeak gathering nest material, Central Quabbin

Song Sparrow carrying food to nest, Central Quabbin

I spent another morning in Central Quabbin covering two atlas blocks. Some great birds around and alot of confirmations of breeding noted. Again the vast majority of birds seen today were on territory and likely nesting/getting ready to nest. There were a few migrants still around such as Northern Parula and Yellow-bellied Flycatcher. I ran into another group of Red Crossbills with at least one juvenile with the group of four. There were many interesting sightings with many birds building nests and defending territories.
