  7. large rail sp.

    Number observed: 1

    Comments: Railbed. While listening for flycatchers, I noticed this bird fly a short distance at the edge between scrub wetland and flooded woods, flushed by the golfers on the 7th hole tee. Brownish/gray overall color, long outstretched neck, wings set back, neck and head held higher than the body. Best guess is some species of rail given the color, long neck, and posture in flight. Couldn't relocate it.

    Comments: Low flyover from Wakefield, heading eastward, flew over the largest pool at Audubon Road. With cloudy sky backdrop, I had a clear look at its head and dark mustache. Two weeks ago, one flew on this same line in the opposite direction at sunset. If it's the same falcon, it may be hunting in Essex county and returning toward Wakefield/Woburn? at night.

  21. Number observed: 1

    Comments: First patch bird! The second record for Lynnfield Marsh, assuming Peter and Fay's OSFL in 1997 in "Wakefield" was in the Wakefield side of Lynnfield Marsh. Sang twice at least 50 yards south of Partridge boardwalk. Unmistakable 'quick-three-beers.' A Willow Flycatcher seemed to react to the song also, popping up to a high perch, scanning in its direction, and calling and singing constantly, perhaps defending its territory. Tried 15 minutes for audio recording, but it never sang again. Certain on the ID.
