We were fortunate to run into Ted Murin today at Dead Creek WMA who gave a look through his scope at a Greater White-fronted Goose among the 2000+ Snow Geese. Also present were 300 or so Ring-billed Gulls following a tractor, three Great Blue Heron, three Red-tailed Hawks and one Northern Harrier.
In Bridport we had excellent views of two Rough-legged Hawks, one light, one dark, together over a field. Also in Bridport, south of McCuen Slang, on the lake, one Bald Eagle, a Common Loon, and 60 or so Common Goldeneye.
From the New York side of the beautiful new bridge, we saw four Common Loons.
At Tri-town, there were one Common Loon, one Horned Grebe and about 50 Common Goldeneye.
On Lake St. in Bridport we saw a Northern Mockingbird not far from where we saw one last January.
And finally one the way home, in Bridport two Red-tailed Hawks, one very light in color, but probably not light enough to be a Krider's. No sign of the leucistic hawk in our travels.
All sightings eBirded of course!
