Lots less birds singing or showing themselves, but a great day  
nevertheless. First Barred Owl I've seen in 2 years (See COA Facebook  page) And FOS 
Osprey following Bigelow Brook downstream. Also a Purple  Finch in the middle 
of Barlow Mill Road, exact same spot I saw a pair 2 years  ago. No 
overhanging trees so I assumed it was after gravel, but several pictures  show it had 
part of what looked like a worm. Maybe something that got run over.  Still 
more Veerys than I've ever seen/heard there before, way outnumbering  
anything else.  Couple of C. Ravens still hanging around and  chatting.
