1/9 - at Dodge Pond in Niantic (East Lyme) this afternoon I saw the 
following:  2 pied-billed grebes, 45 ring-necked ducks, 2 Am. coots, 2 ruddy ducks, 6 
hooded mergansers, 4 buffleheads, 15 mallards, 1 great blue heron, 1 carolina 

also, the YELLOW-BREASTED CHAT continues at the same location in Old Lyme, at 
the end of Lieutenant River Ln.  Just look for mailbox #17 and the chat is 
there in the thicket (3PM).

I also was fortunate to arrive at the DEP headquarters in Old Lyme at 3:30 
just as the two PEREGRINE FALCONS were soaring together above the Baldwin Bridge 
on the east side.  I was able to watch them for over 10 minutes before they 
disappeared behind some trees.

home feeders:  2 RED-BREASTED NUTHATCHES continue along with 3-4 f. PURPLE 
FINCHES.   No PINE SISKINS for several weeks.

Start the year off right.  Easy ways to stay in shape.
