I spent a couple hours on Powwow Pond with a friend his afternoon. It was the first time I'd paddled out there in a while and as usual it did not disappoint.
The first highlight was a BRANT that was seen on the east end of the pond, it was headed east and not sure if it circled back around.
Another interesting bird was what I presume to be a Pine Grosbeak...I was alerted to a yellowlegs (tee tee tew) type call overhead. After failing to spot 'the yellowlegs', I realized it was coming from a passerine that appeared to land in the tall pines not far from the boat launch - the tree also happened to be loaded with pine cones. I was unable to relocate it as I got closer, and I never did get a clear visual, but I'm not sure what else it could have been?
There was also a nice flock of Rusty Blackbirds (40ish) and then some Red-winged Blackbirds (500+) who were interestingly going to town on pine cones.
