In related Richmond/Huntington bird news, a lone male COMMON MERGANSER was
fishing on the pond/wetland this morning at the intersection of Rt. 2 and
Snipe Ireland Road two miles east of Richmond village, while a group of
mallards hung about the periphery of the pond. Also spotted a GREAT BLUE
HERON standing in a large puddle in the middle of one of the fields just
west of the wetland.
