The last weekend of July signals the midpoint of the current season, at least as far as the conventional calendar is concerned. Birds run on a different timetable than humans, so many of the former are making plans for fall (or spring) while the latter still ponders how to spend those summer (or winter) nights. So if the birding by you has been uninspiring, just wait. A change is on the horizon. I’ll be in Boston for part of this weekend.
