American Redstart building nest, Quabbin Gate 12, June 16,2012
A few photos from this weekend of birding. Most (if not all) warblers around now are breeders and are various stages of raising the next generation. Some are on nests, others are bringing food to the nest while others are still building nests. I tried unsuccessfully to refind the Hooded Warbler that has been present at Quabbin for several weeks. This is the first time I missed finding the bird. Hopefully it has found a mate and settled in. Overall I managed to find a total of 16 species of warbler without too much effort.
