Thirteen people joined our walk today on the grounds of Hildene, here in
Manchester. 

Highlights of the walk included finding 4 fairly young poults, and the
surprise of 13 birders practically walking on top of the mother Wild Turkey,
literally right next to a female Common Yellowthroat and at least 3 young
begging. 

Scarlet Tanager after much singing, finally provide some nice views. But the
real action was down at marsh. Green Herons, Belted Kingfisher, American
Bittern and the fantastic eyes of Barbara Powers spotting two Snipes that
were life birds for many in the party. 

Savannah Sparrow - carrying food. 
Gray Catbird - carrying food
Bobolinks - Males had all but lost their yellow cap, which appeared mostly
white, very distinct from previous sightings. 

Species count is now up to 107.
