Checklist Comments:    Brookline Bird Club Walk – Pine Hill Grassland section of Bolton Flats WMA. Leader Nickilas Paulson. 5 participants. Mix of sun and clouds and drizzle to start. Then we retreated when one larger cell, with lightning and wind, passed over the far field. After it passed, we had a great view of a full double rainbow. As we waited for the whip-poor-will’s we got to see the fog forming in the fields.
