Bird Notes




Retreat Meadows

Late this afternoon (11/02) a juvenile Red-necked Grebe was swimming about in the Retreat Meadows, viewed from RT 30. Other water birds included a few hundred Canada Geese along with several Hooded Mergansers, Common Mergansers, Black Ducks, and Mallards.

More at the Meadows

Wednesday (11/4) there were 3 LONG-TAILED DUCKS, 22 Hooded Mergansers, 20 Common Mergansers, 6 Buffleheads, several Ring-necked Ducks,  and 1 Great Blue Heron. 100s of Canada Geese continue to come and go each day. Let me know if you see any yellow banded or collared Canada Geese.

Herricks Cove

A quick stop at the Cove today (11/6) gave us good looks at a flock of 26 Green-winged Teal that were hanging out in the first open water as you drive in the entrance road.




Please keep us abreast of what birds you are seeing, whether at home or on a trip in or out of the Windham County area.
