Maple Hollow Rd Swamp produced with a SHRIKE going after a N Flicker. Saw the black mask but didn't see it long enough to confirm as Northern - searched for 1/2 hour to re-locate with no luck. An ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER worked lower brush and was able to get within 15' for great looks. Also at the swamp: 2 Hooded Mergansers, c. 5 Rusty Blackbirds, 4 Purple Finches, 3 E. Phoebes.
Barkhamsted Reservoir had 43 Black Ducks, 13 Ring-Necked Ducks and 1 Northern Pintail (male).
