Before trying for the Great Gray this evening (I was one of the many who didn't stay until dark to see it as was just reported), I stopped in New London to look for Bohemian Waxwings.
Fortunately, I found a decent-sized flock feeding in the fruiting trees behind the Colonial Pharmacy. Ironically, my first winter in NH a few years ago I tried in this exact same location where they were reported before and dipped. It felt nice to get good looks at this species in a place I had failed to find them before.
The flock was about 100 strong and as far as I could see was mostly BOWAs. There was only one Cedar that I could find.
