This post is backdated for reference, we really appreciate folks letting us know what they've seen in the area when we can't cover it!
We had a successful late morning visit to The Post on April 28. And thanks to your directions, we also found the prairie dog colony with a number of burrowing owls north of Marathon. FYI, I've included a list of the birds our Mass Audubon group found at The Post. Thanks again for your assistance.
