Gates 10, 8 and 6
I spent a few hours covering another atlas block (Belchertown 4). It was nice to get out in the early morning before it got oppressively hot again. The morning started out quite cloudy and humid with skies that look like they might open up at any point. No photos to go along with the trip today but some good stuff. The Acadian Flycatcher continues to call along the Gate 8 road and several fledgling Golden-crowned Kinglets were quite vocal and active. The toughest part of the morning were the incredible number of deer flies. They seem especially numerous this year.
