A week and a half this time as next week will be very different.
Tuesday 1/26: Beaver Brook ponds were flooded but had 2 Hooded Mergansers and a few American Black Ducks.
Wednesday 1/27: Charles, refound the Lesser Scaup and finally had a goldeneye for the year but very quiet otherwise. Not a single gull! Also had at least 25 Mallards buzzing around the neighborhood after sunset.
Thursday 1/28: Nothing of note.
Friday 1/29: Freezing cold but hit Lyman Pond quickly. It was frozen.
Saturday 1/30: Still freezing but checked Dunback briefly. Creeper and not much else.
Sunday 1/31: Plum with MBC. Snowy Owl (even further than last time), Rough-legged Hawk, Horned Lark, Bald Eagle, and lots and lots of ice and wind.
Monday 2/1: Beaver Brook North, nothing of real note.
Tuesday 2/2: Purgatory Cove: Lesser Black-backed Gull (last year’s bird back?) but no eagles.
Wednesday 2/3: Paine: creeper and not much else.
Thursday 2/4: Moody St, nothing much (no dark-mantled gulls at all)
Friday 2/5: Charles: scaup still around, 1 fish crow calling, fairly quiet otherwise.
