Breeders and Migrants: Middlesex Fells
In late May the breeders have settled into the Middlesex Fells. We’ll look for Great Crested Flycatchers, Scarlet Tanagers, Indigo Buntings, Brown Thrashers and a variety of others. This is also the time of year to catch some late migrant species such as flycatchers. Meet on Playstead Road where it meets Winthrop Street in Medford. Please park on the west side in front of the cemetery. 7:00-9:30 AM. Lorraine Kaplan  and Renee LaFontaine

Saturday May 31
Lyman and Paine Estates, Waltham

The Western Greenway consists of over 1200 acres of interconnected open space in Waltham, Lexington, and Belmont. There has been little documentation of breeding birds in many parts of the Greenway. We will choose a section that most likely few Menotomy Birders know and hike and bird. Meet in the parking lot of the Robert Treat Paine Estate off Beaver Street in Waltham. 7:00-9:00AM Dianna Queheillalt and Roger Wrubel

Sunday, June 1
Great Meadows NWR, Concord
We'll look for rails and other marsh birds and hopefully have a few surprises as well. Co-sponsored by the Brookline Bird Club. Meeting place: Refuge parking lot on Monsen Road (off Rt. 62). 6:30-9:00 AM Jason Forbes.

Saturday, June 7
Breeding Birds at Sandy Beach
Sandy Beach (Charles Shannon Beach), a small DCR park at the northern end of the Mystic Lakes in Winchester, attracts a large variety of breeding birds. It is the best local place to see Orchard Orioles. Baltimore Orioles, Eastern Kingbirds, Warbling Vireos, Pine Warblers, and Chipping Sparrows are among the species that nest here every year. Meet in the large parking lot on Mystic Valley Pkwy.  7:30-8:30 AM Renee LaFontaine
