2/23/2012 This morning at the Stratford Boat Ramp there were two Red Winged Black Birds across from the treatment plant discharge canal/waterfall. I've been hearing / seeing them all week.
Also two Ravens have been very active in the area of Main Street/Access Road. I work in an office directly across from Frash Pond and yesterday and this morning I have watched them sit in the trees along the road and then fly toward me and up toward our roof. I suspect they are looking to nest up there. There has been a lot more gull on the roof with them dropping what sometimes sounds like bricks onto it and a lot of squawking. Maintenance tells me Gulls typically nest on the roof and they have a service that removes the nests each year. He said if the Ravens nest there, those nests would be removed as well :( I asked if I could get permission to go up there and look around at some point he said that was doubtful, (which doesn't surprise me).
