WIR 12/7-12/13

Wednesday 12/7: Hardy Pond in the rain, nothing exciting.

Thursday 12/8: Prospect Hill had nothing (and the flooded base was interesting walking). Feeder visitor was back for a good amount of time at night.

Friday 12/9: Didn’t get out.

Saturday 12/10: Drove around looking for things with snow in the name. Didn’t find any. Nice flock of turkeys near Nine Acre Corner and that was about it. Stopped at Waltham St. on the way back and found the Lark Sparrow singing!

Still there

Lark Sparrow Singing

Sunday 12/11: Started with Lot 1 and the West Meadow. Couple Hermit Thrushes and some waxwings at Lot 1 and 5 bluebirds and 2 Red-wings at West Meadow. Purgatory Cove was quiet (cormorant and Pied-billed Grebe about it, no owls). Charlesbank had another cormorant and 50ish coots. Hardy Pond had 4 wigeon among the regular stuff.

Monday 12/12: Charles had 2 Hoodies and 1 Common Merganser. Moderate number of gulls in the parking lot for a change, although all Ring-bills.

Tuesday 12/13: Duck ponds were pretty quiet. One hoodie was about it.
