The male canvasback reported earlier on Facebook by Bob Abbott at Big Chauncy Lake in Westboro was still there at 10:20am today. It is in with a large (maybe 1,000 ducks) flock of ducks and gulls. I observed it from the road that parallels the lake inside of the state hospital property. The ducks are in the middle of the lake where there is a little open water. Lots of Hooded Mergansers and lesser numbers of Mallards, Common Mergansers, Bufflehead and Ring-necked Ducks. Few gulls and no swans seen.
