Subject: [MASSBIRD] Canvasback at Big Chauncy Lake in Westboro
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.
