2/4, Housatonic River Access (Rt-110), Stratford-
(3) Common Mergansers
(3) Double-crested Cormorant
)1) Great Cormorant (man their necks/heads are bulky compared to DCs!!)
(1) Great Blue Heron
(1) Bleted Kingfisher
(1) Peregrine Falcon
(+/-200) Canada geese
(1) Snow Goose (blue morph) in with Canadas.
The geese were hugging the Stratford side of the river, and as I small group lazily listed by, a nice looking 'blue' Goose was with them.
Zero eagles, or any raptors other than the Peregrine who likes to hunt the factories across the river. I was hoping the recent freeze would've brought a few down to 'my' eagle spot, but no such luck. (I guess I used it up on snagging that BE on the last day of the S/M CBC!)
Peck's Mill Pond was about 3% open, a huge difference from last week when it was almost totally open and filled with Hoodies, Blacks, Mallards and a few Woodies. Today, 4 Mallards had trouble navigating through icey mud.
