A nice evening walk at Great Pond in Randolph; coming in from Norroway Road.

CASPIAN TERN 1, this adult was in high breeding plumage. Sitting on one of the small rocks off the "spit" of the dike. It began to call frequently like it was looking for others. Not getting any response, it eventually flew off to the north.

Lesser Scaup 3 (2 male)

Ring-necked Duck 10 (6 male including on sitting on rock preening apparently soiled [oil?} just below the black chest)

COMMON GOLDENEYE 1 imm male, these are usually gone by May

Common Merganser 1 female

Common Loon 2 (1 breeding plumage which presumably was the one who yodeled)

Spotted Sandpiper 1

Chimney Swift 1 heard only

No orioles or Warbling Vireos or Yellow Warblers for that matter.
