Glossy Ibis-Longmeadow

The Hitchcock Center birding class headed down to Pondside & Fannie Stebbins Refuge in Longmeadow this morning. A fair amount of bird activity around the refuge, the highlight was the Glossy Ibis- which to my surprise was still hanging in, after being reported over a week ago. Complete list below......
