About 15-20 Snow Buntings and perhaps a few more than that of Horned Larks are occasionally frequenting the plowed field at Stratford Point today and were joined by a small flock of American Tree Sparrows near the brush pile.    A pair of Peregrine Falcons made an unsuccessful pass at the dove flock and the Black-bellied Plovers and American Oystercatchers continue.   Scott has a couple of Black Scoters way out in the Sound yesterday among the more numerous Surf Scoters.

The Point may only be open for a reduced time tomorrow because of the snow and that I have an offsite meeting.  It will be open on Saturday (morning at least) for the McKinney volunteer training session.

Your Legacy is Audubon's Future!
Bequests have been essential sources of support for Audubon since the beginning of our Society - Audubon was founded with a Legacy Gift!
Planned gifts of all sizes can have a profound impact on the vital work we do. They can also provide tax incentives like reducing estate income taxes.
