The 5/15 GMC bird walk had to be postponed because – no surprise this spring! – it was pouring rain.

On 5/22, five of us walked the trails at Crane Brook Conservation Area in Underhill Center. Everyone got great looks at a singing and calling Veery, both male and female Common Yellowthroats, and a glorious singing Black-Throated Green Warbler.

We all listened in amazement to the long, trilling song of the tiny Winter Wren.

  • Male Indigo Bunting,
  • Mourning Doves,
  • Yellow-bellied Sapsucker,
