> From Mark Scott: 12/25/15 -- Farmington Canal Trail, Cheshire (between Higgins and Cornwall roads) -- off-topic: intermittent vocalizations very like those of spring peepers. Frequently ride the trail; have not heard anything suggestive of this species since last spring. There is documentation of winter vocalizing by peepers during warm winter spells: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/special/metro/urban-jungle/pages/130326.html .
> On-topic: in the same area as above, and also south of the Lock 12 Museum, the mixed-species flock of vultures (turkey and black, up to thirty individuals) continues to draw the attention of passersby. Over the last two months, black vultures have occasionally been observed standing or walking along the edge of the paved thoroughfare; keeping one's distance is advisable.
