Needham News

The killdeers nesting at Needham High are evidently foraging at the mud bed that will soon become Rosemary Lake.

A heathly crew of swifts and swallows (including northern rough-wings (#194)) are enjoying the area. I also caught the song of a field sparrow (#195) while I was there.

Meanwhile, all that tree cutting (still resented by old-timers) at the Charles River Peninsula seems to have yielded the desired result. A male bobolink (see his nice dandelion head) seems to have taken up residence. No sign of a female, though...

Also, a first for me at the CRP: an osprey. And there is a pair of robins who have built a nest right at the entrance gate. Endless disturbance, it seems to me...
