12/2 - Hansen's Pond off Wormwood Hill Road in Mansfield. The bird has been among a flock of ~100 Ring-necked Ducks at the far end of the pond for at least 2 days and in the past Ring-necked Ducks often stay there until the pond freezes. Easiest (but distant) views are from the dam at the outlet of the pond but a scope is necessary. Otherwise, the pond is surrounded by private property. You can likely pick it up with binoculars if you are willing to walk along the road looking through the trees. Redhead is rather unusual in NE CT.  Steve Morytko
