All,
The species count was 57 last week. The lake continued mostly ice covered. Highlights included:
Snow Goose
Ross's Goose-one from at least 2/10
Cackling Goose
6 duck species including:
1 Wood Duck 2/10
Wild Turkey-high report 35 2/8
1 Red-shouldered Hawk 2/9
1 American Coot 2/10
4 gull species including the usual Lesser Black-backed Gull
Also, Brown Creeper, Golden-crowned and Ruby-crowned Kinglets, E. Bluebird, Hermit Thrush, E. Towhee, & Swamp Sparrow


Correction to last week's post. The 13 Chipping Sparrows 1/3 were correct but should not have been on my 2/4-2/10 list.


The Western Tanager & Harris's Sparrow continued through the week at the previously reported sites.
The Sandhill Cranes also continued at the King Rd. and Pine Run Dam sites through the week.


Thanks to all who reported their sightings.
