Protocol: Traveling
3.0 mile(s)
Comments:    Brookline Bird Club scheduled morning walk. We birded main parking lot, the bridge over the Nashua River, Still River Depot Rd., rail road tracks in both directions (portions of the tank road near the parking lot was flooded and water too high to cross even w/ high boots), crossed over from rail tracks and accessed the Turnpike Trail down to pond/swamp area.  Cold, raw and overcast morning. Rather quiet. It felt more like early April than late April.
