Not sure if an active colony; several males were perched arounf large vernal pool on taller stands of grass. Pool located along bern to landfill east of Burke Lane. ANother 15 tricoloreds were foraging in area but appeared to be birds from Hay Road Landfill colony just to east. Nestign habitat limited at present. The adjacent dike has thistles, but cover was low and thistles may have been mowed down last fall and were just beginning to regrow.
