I just saw a flock of crows chasing a white raptor by my window at Stratford Point and grabbed the camera and ran. It was one of the Snowy Owls. The Great Black-backed Gulls joined/took over the chase and chased it back towards the breakwater. I didn't check to see if it landed there though, but it is probably the place to check.
Still a good flock of Snow Buntings around. The Surf Scoters were a bit closer to shore than they have been this winter. A flock of mixed scaup flew by and there are some American Tree Sparrows near the old feed plot. Also a flock of Brant flying by, which have been quite scarce this winter.

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.
