Tuesday’s Birds

Although we would love to be open seven days a week, Frontera is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, except by appointment or group visit.  Wednesday a.m. finds us wondering just what will be found in the Thicket after a few quiet days.   Repair work was completed on the water feature today, apparently just in time for the sweetly moving water to host the singing Northern Beardless Tyrannulet, according to Dan Jones, who explored the Thicket this afternoon to give us a preview of what to expect this week.  In addition to the Tyrannulet,  the Massachusettes Audubon Society – scheduled to visit tomorrow, can expect to see the following:
