The winds last night continued out of the south slightly and with on and off thunderstorms and showers. I hoped that something (terns or shorebirds) tried to move through but then got caught in bad weather and set down. With this in mind I checked Winsor Dam at dawn but nothing unusual there. I then headed toward Northampton with brief stops along the rail trail and a few fields in Hadley. Again nothing unusual was found. Perhaps someone did find something of note today but that someone was not me this morning.The evening featured a nice Common Nighthawk show with at least 21 over the house late in the evening. I also had a Barred Owl hooting and a Virginia Rail sounding off at home. I had thoughts of trying to conduct the Quabbin Park area Whip-poor-will survey this evening but the weather made that impossible to do. Perhaps this weekend or early next week?
