Poverty Mountain bird census
I made the trip over to a friends property in Shutesbury near Poverty Mountain to help him and others with the annual bird census there. We originally planned this last weekend but got rained out. We almost got rained out this weekend too but managed to finish it up before the rain hit...again. Some great birds and people. We managed to have some close encounters with various warblers including Black throated Green, Black throated Blue and Ovenbird. A large family of Wild Turkey's surprised us as we moved through one of the fields (ten little guys scattering in all directions!). Nothing unusual but good numbers and variety. No photos from the day but thought I would post about it anyway.
