WIR 12/13-12/19

Wednesday 12/13: Quick stop at Norumbega was quiet, sun was brutal at Charlesbank.

Thursday 12/14: Nothing of note on the riverwalk.

Friday 12/15: Mostly quiet at Dunback.

Saturday 12/16: Checked the res, which had a bit of open water and was very busy: 130+ Hoodies, 100+ Ring-necks, Bufflehead, goldeneye, Ruddy, a Wood Duck, 3 GW Teal, and more. CBC scouting at BBN had a Ruby-crowned Kinglet and 2 Rusty Blackbirds. Moody St was quiet, and a few assorted drive-by stops had nothing much.

Sunday 12/17: CBC highlights included refinding the chat and a Barred Owl at BBN (patch #170!). Returning from the countdown, ended up face to face with the flying squirrel.
