Thanks to Terry for good directions to the Essex Center Citgo station 
for a great variety of crabapple feasters all  hanging out together 
oblivious to all the traffic : 40+ waxwings, mostly bohemians(but 
lighting wasn't great so there could have been a few cedars);15 or so 
pine grosbeaks, 2 robins, and a house finch. Then on to Tower Rd. for a 
small flock of pine grosbeaks again methodically clearing the 
crabapples. For both these sightings you can get very close, especially 
at the Citgo station. Today the birds were in the median in front of the 
convenience store.Nancy Goodrich, Burlington
