Subject: [MASSBIRD] Turner's Falls - Barrow's Goldeneye 12/05
Greetings birders,


At the Turner's Falls power canal a fine drake Barrow's Goldeneye showed up
among 80 Common Goldeneye in the gloom yesterday evening (Dec 5th). I
managed a few grainy record shots despite the rain and mist;

Also a decent sized flock of Horned Larks (125) and Snow Buntings (42) at
Pauchaug WMA in Northfield on Dec 5th.


I haven't been able to detect any new gulls lately, though I believe Eric
Huston saw a first-cycle Iceland Gull at the power canal on Dec 2nd.


Good birding,


James
