Despite the threatened rain I took a drive to Boston Hollow  yesterday, and 
stopped at the new beaver dam and marsh, on the left  side just a 10th of a 
mile after the road turns to dirt. The weather was  already very 
threatening but there were a lot of birds making a lot of noise.  Maybe they wanted 
breakfast before the rains came. I was there about an hour  sitting in my car 
in one spot and had 23 different species, plus a  Broad-winged Hawk sitting 
on a wire before I even got to the dirt road. There  aren't than many places 
you can go right now and get 24 species in a day of  birding. Just before 
it started raining it suddenly got quiet, and stayed that  way even after it 
stopped, an hour later.
