WIR 12/11-12/17

Wednesday 12/11: Nothing much on the Charles, loon and hundreds of ducks on the res.

Thursday 12/12: Nothing at Paine or Gore. First goldeneye of the season on the Charles.

Friday 12/13: Too cold, although lots of ducks on the res but I didn’t have a scope for them.

Saturday 12/14: With the CBC canceled for Sunday, I wandered to the Oak Grove Cemetery instead of scouting. Couldn’t find the Lark Sparrow and it was too cold to get of the car and see the Chipping (not to mention working trucks and a Merlin scattering stuff). Also checked the Mystic Lakes quickly but didn’t see anything beyond mergansers. Stopped at the res on the way home, but stuff was too close to the highway and the heat waves were too strong to really sort through, although I could pick up pretty much all of the ducks that had been there.

Sunday 12/15: Watched feeders.

Monday 12/16: River walk had the same.

Tuesday 12/17: Watched feeders.
