At 1 pm today I stopped to survey the pond area and snow-dappled fairways at Samoset Resort golf course. A single pink-footed goose with 125+ Canadas. In the near pond area, 6 American wigeon and drake gadwall with scattered blacks and mallards. Not to be outdone by the omni-courting mallard gangs, a drake wigeon made a half-hearted effort at copulation. Three killdeer scurrying purposefully through the sand traps. An immature snow goose makes occasional appearances at Samoset, but not so today. At Weskeag, scores of arriving green-winged teal, a few hoodies and common mergansers.
