WIR 2/14-2/20

Wednesday 2/14: Nothing much at Kaveski.

Thursday 2/15: Fogged in at Farm Pond.

Friday 2/16: Fogged in at Forest Grove.

Saturday 2/17: Started with a quick check of the duck ponds (nothing), and then the Belmont Country Club course. After some wandering along Concord Ave, got the White-fronted Goose that had been at Arlington Res yesterday (patch #172). After that, moved on to trying various things for Jeremiah’s Slaty-backed. Not much along the Charles, and 3 hours freezing at Fresh Pond. Did get an Iceland Gull off Memorial Drive late in the day.

Sunday 2/18: Nice adult Iceland at the UMass boat ramp. Ravens at Fresh Pond (but next to no gulls again), 3 RT Loons on Memorial Drive plus about 20 RB Mergansers and a Peregrine (one in Chelmsford on the way to Lowell too).

Monday 2/19: Inland Norfolk county for a change. Needham Transfer Station eventually had an Iceland Gull fly through, plus 2 Turkey Vultures, some cowbirds, and a ton of both crows. Cutler Lake had more uninteresting gulls plus Common Mergansers. Couple stops along the Charles on the way home didn’t have much and I wasn’t in the mood to drive to Gloucester.

Tuesday 2/20: Couldn’t find the White-front at Arlington Res (or the Killdeer, or any kinglets) but did have a Peregrine.
