Larry Therrien found a Golden-­winged Warbler singing near the Quabbin Reservoir on May 31. It initially gave hope that it might be singing on territory and planning to stay, but on June 2 the bird flew away and was not seen again. Larry took the photo above. Joe Bourget found a second-­cycle Franklin’s Gull at Race Point June 2. This turned out to be just the first; extensive photography and discussion of plumages indicated that four or more individuals were present at various times throughout most of the month of June. Peter Flood took the photo above. A Mississippi Kite that arrived over the Province Lands Visitor Center on June 4 was joined after a short time by two others, and the trio soared over Provincetown for a while before departing. Sean Williams took the photo above.
