WIR 2/9-2/15

Wednesday 2/9: Umbrello was unplowed (I think) so Lindentree it was. Couple ravens, lots of bluebirds, couple Red-wings about it. Doubled back on the way home to find a perfect snow owl at the compost dump.

Thursday 2/10: Grackle over the yard in the morning. Another at Fresh Pond but not much else there.

Friday 2/11: Red-shoulder at Kaveski (plus finally a commute Cooper’s) and then a Chipping Sparrow back at the car at Brooks Village.

Saturday 2/12: Finally did the Scituate-Cohasset loop I’ve been intending since the 1st of the year. Lighthouse was windy and not super birdy, Great Cormorant and Dunlin the most interesting. Musquashicut Pond had expected ducks. Little Harbor had a harrier and finally a Great Cormorant for Norfolk (didn’t scope so no Harlequin/Purple Sandpiper). Couldn’t find my way around Hull, so went to Nut Island which was quiet. Quick check of the Norumbega area on the way back had nothing. Res and Hardy were still frozen.

Sunday 2/13: Ended up too snowy.

Monday 2/14: Still too snowy.

Tuesday 2/15: Tons of geese along the river in Watertown, quite a few Bufflehead, a Ring-neck, and that was about it.
