>From my vantage point along West Rock Ridge earlier today i scoped a pair of 
Trumpeter Swans towards the south end of the pond - well removed from a group of 
five mute swans. Others species noted within the pond included American Black 
Duck, Mallard, Ring-necked Duck, Great Blue Heron and a mixed group of several 
dozen Ring-billed and Herring Gulls. Along the ridge itself i encountered two, 
possibly three, Peregrines, and only a single small mixed flock consisting of 
Downy Woodpecker, Tufted Titmouse, White-breasted Nuthatch, Brown Creeper, and a 
Golden-crowned Kinglet.   Other birds along the way included a flock of ~ three 
dozen American Robins, a few Turkey Vultures and a lone Hairy Woodpecker.
