WIR 12/18-12/24

Wednesday 12/18: Was nice out so of course the Pine Warbler was chipping away along the river. One of two count week birds along the Charles today and not quite as good as the Townsend’s found in Watertown. Also a Ruddy and otherwise about the same.

Thursday 12/19: Too cold, did scan the res very quickly, nothing new.

Friday 12/20: Busy

Saturday 12/21: Finally tried for the Townsend’s, no luck obviously. Nothing terribly exciting along the river, RC Kinglet was the most exciting at Mt. Auburn after.

Sunday 12/22: Usual at Horn Pond. Goldeneye on Upper Mystic Lake was surprisingly a first for me on the lakes. Only found one of the Chipping Sparrows at Meadowbrook. Very little open water on the res, Ring-neck, couple Hoodies, couple goldeneye, and a few gulls.

Monday 12/23: Riverwalk was dead.

Tuesday 12/24: Started by Watertown Square again. No Townsend’s but got the Yellow-rump and catbird that had been seen over the last few days. Continued to the east and had another Yellow-rump. Continued from there to Magazine Beach for some reason, which was totally dead.
