Hiked in Gate 35 in New Salem this morning and there is a large concentration of mergansers, with conservatively 140 Commons and 80 Hooded Mergansers. Also 35 Ring-necked Ducks and 2 Bald Eagles. Probably one of the last places in the N Quabbin area with open water. There were 26 Horned Larks on the manure piles in the fields off Old South/Blackinton Rd.
