We had 11 people join us for our second walk of the month at Hildene  
here in Manchester yesterday.

Great birding activity behind the main house in the orchard with some  
wonderful views of Eastern Bluebirds and the Chestnut-sided Warbler.  
The highlight of the day was the concerted effort of all 11 birders  
and their binoculars finally spotting the Yellow-throated Vireo that  
was heard calling and particularly good at hiding behind leaves. That  
sighting makes 113 species on the property.

Our next walk will be June 20th.
