WIR 2/20-2/26

Wednesday 2/20: River walk was on the quiet side (no Hoodies!), but both scaup (see 2/6) were by the ball field. The second one was also a Lesser.

Thursday 2/21: Duck ponds as usual.

Friday 2/22: Woerd Ave again, nothing new.

Saturday 2/23: Scaup again on Hardy, still too far out. On to Dunback, heard a few blackbirds but not much else. Moved on to the riverwalk, which was about the same (more goldeneye) and then Moody St (nothing new).

Sunday 2/24: Stayed in.

Monday 2/25: Hardy Pond was quiet. Cambridge Res was busy with tons of Ring-necks, a few scaup (only confirmed Greater), a couple wigeon,  goldeneye, Bufflehead, and all 3 mergansers (Red-breasted new for the res?).

Tuesday 2/26: Went to Met State but the parking lot was nonexistent so continued to the duck ponds. Very little (no Mallards!). Finally walked around the block in the afternoon and immediately had first of year grackles and some Red-winged Blackbirds.
