1 American Wigeon within a flock of at least 200 Mallards and Black Ducks in the meltwater area on the east side of Nod Road, just south of the Route 185 intersection in Simsbury.  The birds are quite close to the road and very skittish; would suggest staying inside the car while observing.

We had a Wigeon in the same location last January.

Also today:  11 Horned Larks at the Simsbury Airport.
