Lowell Cemetery, Middlesex, Massachusetts, US
May 9, 2019 6:30 AM – 10:00 AM
Comments:    16 folks joined me for a bird walk co-sponsored by the Lowell Parks and Conservation Trust and the Brookline Bird Club on a spectacular spring morning with blue skies, very little wind and temps starting in the 40s and rising steadily. We spent a good deal of time on the adjacent Concord River Greenway getting great looks at Yellow and Yellow-rumped Warblers and Baltimore Orioles before finishing in the cemetery and picking up some additional species.
44 species
Wood Duck  1
Mallard  4
Rock Pigeon (Feral Pigeon)  1
