I"ve had both pewees and red-eyed vireos, too, the occasional hermit
thrush, and, for the last month, black-billed cuckoos. The big surprise for
me is that winter wrens have not stopped singing all summer, though not as
forcefully as in mid to late spring. Even mid-day, when I run the length of
Five Corners Road, I hear one or two winter wrens hitting a few notes.
Thanks for all the Mansfield updates. One these years I'll join you.
