Checklist Comments:    BBC-Great Meadows National wildlife Refuge, Concord- Leader: Kathy Dia. Constant light rain for the first hour or so of the walk, then overcast with sun trying to peek out as it set behind dark clouds. No nighthawks definitively ID’d. In addition to the birds seen we observed Muskrats, Northern Water Snake, and nice views of a bat in the parking lot.
