On a hike around L. Hammonassett:
1 THRUSH sp. - looked like a Hermit Thrush except for color, more blue-gray 
 than red-brown, but it was in fairly dark woods so it was hard to tell. 
Flew  right in front of me and landed in a tree about 40 feet away.
2 Northern Shovelers, appeared to be m and f
7 Scaup sp. - appeared to be Lesser
At least 100 Common Mergansers, perhaps more, spread out around the lake  
and in at least 1 very large flock. 
5 probable Ruddy Ducks, too far for good id. Could have been  more.
