Comments:     It was a mostly sunny hike into Tirrell Pond. Bird activity was light, with the chickadees not appearing to be accompanied by any migrants. At one point a pair of White-throated Sparrows responded to my spishing, though there were probably many more of this species throughout the woods as I heard their calls from time to time. Approaching Tirrell Pond a male Black-throated Blue Warbler popped up to inspect our passing, as did a thrush. However, I wasn't able to get a good enough look at the thrush to determine if it was a Hermit or some other kind. On the beach at Tirrell Pond, a kingfisher took umbrage with our arrive and flew away, filling the area with it's rattling call. The hike back out did not produce any new species.
