Chris and I went in search of open water along the Connecticut River...
1) From Windsor Locks Canal State Park (Suffield):  drake Barrow's Goldeneye, female Bufflehead
2) From Barnes Boat Launch in Enfield:  Redhead, 2 Bald Eagles
3) From the end of Ferry Rd, South Windsor:  4 Snow Geese (with 600+ Canadas), 1 Lesser Scaup (note: the river section here was viewed from private property, with the owner's permission)
Also, along Ferry Rd:  2 Horned Larks, 2 Snow Buntings (unwittingly harassed by snowmobilers), Savannah Sparrow, adult female Northern Harrier, one adult and three immature Bald Eagles 
4) Vibert Road, South Windsor: Merlin (last bird of the day!)
