Two large flocks of grackles were seen today---one about 150 strong here in Brandon the other near Rutland. Rain didn't seem to be a problem.
Also seen---- two flocks of turkeys just north of Rutland along with a murder of crows. Kent Pond was active with waterfowl. With umbrella deployed I saw long tailed duck, black and surf scoters and a loon. Rain was torrential so I missed some of the others seen by the Elliotts earlier in the morning. On the way home along Rt 7 four deer were feeding in a field. None had umbrellas.
