Yesterday I saw my first ever Pintail at the Connecticut River in Hinsdale. Their was also a small flock of hidden mergansers, common mergansers, a few ringneck ducks, and a huge mixed group of mallards and Canada geese.
The day before (Saturday) at the corner of Carlton Rd and Route 32 in a flooded field their were also mallards, mergansers (hooded and common), and Canada geese.
Red winged blackbirds and grackles have been back since Wednesday of last week where I saw them (and a barred owl) at the airport in Swanzey. I also saw both red winged blackbirds and grackles on the trip to the Connecticut River I mentioned above.
Also their are lots of mourning doves everywhere lately. Yes I see them all year, but the numbers have grown in the last week or so.
