Prospect June1st

This first day of June starts with ACADIAN FLYCATCHER, as breeding birds have established by now a foothold on their territories. Not to say ACFL is doing that  in the Ricks Place area as Rafael reported, but something to look at  as this species was reported last weekend as well in the same spot.4 flycatcher species seen by Rafael today.

Definitely another flycatcher did build a nest, EASTERN KINGBIRD at the Boathouse area, as seen by Mary E this morning.
