After I scanned Rumney Marsh with my bins from Hastings St.(at the southern edge), I went by the bird feeder on Hastings near Elmwood Ave and looked at the birds feeding on seed that had been spilled onto the ground. Lo! and Behold! a DICKCISSEL. He was dapper with his beautiful chestnut shoulder, blazing white throat, and yellow breast. Could this be the same one that I discovered here two years ago? I've had only a few springtime Dickcissels in my life. ! Also of note in and around Revere:
Manx Shearwater 6 F.O.Y. in front of Merriott Hotel opposite Wonderland. Amazingly, found them instantly upon taking out my bins and holding them straight out at the water! There they were, right in my view! WOW!
