The local Raven family has been conspicuous over recent weeks.  Five  were 
flying throughout the Woodridge Lake area over the weekend.  The  adults 
were doing display flights and reaching pretty high altitudes.
Late yesterday, small numbers of Tree Swallows were still visible in the  
neighborhood in Goshen and the flock of at least 20 Rusty Blackbirds  had 
repositioned further up Milton Rd. toward the Bunnell Farm in  Litchfield.
Eileen and I stopped by the farm pond on Newcomb Rd. in Goshen and she  
noticed the arrival of a family of at least five, Hooded  Mergansers.  Canada 
Goose numbers have increased.  A few Am. Wigeon  and Black Ducks are also 
there.  Things change every day and we will keep  an eye on that area.
