4/28/07 - With the sighting of a brown-headed cowbird today, I have now observed 50 bird species in Newton during 2007. I'm a casual birder, so there are many birds I missed. In the next 2-3 weeks the spring bird migration will peak, with many spectacular birds returning to breed (e.g. yellow warbler, northern oriole), or passing through (e.g. northern parula). Join Cris Criscitiello and the Newton Conservators on a Nahanton Park bird walk on Sunday May 13, 8-10 AM.
