Flocks of ~15 and ~10 near Aton Forest headquarters on North Colebrook Rd. The flock of ~15 were higher pitched and likely Type 2. Most others were likely Type 10.
An Estimated 30 Red-Breasted Nuthatches and 4 Brown creepers among the regulars.
The come crop around Benedict Pond looks worked over but other areas along the road near Benedict & Doolittle host fresh-looking cones.
