1/1/2015 - Wethersfield, Wethersfield Cove - 2 ICELAND GULLS in water near
the parking lot, GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE on other side of cove which is
probably the same bird as previously seen in Goodwin Park and 2 PEREGRINE
FALCONS. A ring-billed gull finally succumbed to the dive-bombing attacks
of 2 adult bald eagles. The gull would dive in the water as it avoided the
attacks. But, finally.....  Hartford, Goodwin Park - CACKLING GOOSE and
BRANT continue. They were in the pond on the east side of the golf course
which can be accessed from Hubbard Road.

Also, 4 Rough-winged Swallows continue at the East Hartford Treatment Plant
handling last night's chilly weather well.
