A great day to be out and about with Bob Dewire and his group.  We spent the day in various spots, both the E. Lyme and Lyme units of Nehantic SF, Hartman Park and the adjacent Gungy RD power cut, and also Rt. 82 in Salem.   We worked very hard for the birds today but had a good variety.  The Warbling Vireos are definitely back and it was nice to see my FOS E. Kingbird.
