This evening I was walking my dogs along the rail trail section that runs northwest off Lily Lake Road, just West of Stockdale Rd. in Peterborough from 6:00 PM to 7:15 PM and saw the following: Rusty Blackbird 1, Swamp Sparrow 3, and a Wilson’s Snipe. There were also hundreds of Red-winged Blackbirds and Common Grackles.
