Yesterday there was some activity out in the freshly spread manure. I had 50+ Horned Larks, and a few Snow Buntings. Could not drive my Jeep (or was a bit leery of doing so) too far out into the fields, so was not able to get close to any of the Larks. There were probably a few Longspurs among them. There usually are. I also had several Song Sparrows, and one Savannah Sparrow. In Waterville, along Riverside Dr., I found a male Wood Duck among all the Mallards and Blacks.

With no apparent activity at the Flood Farm in Clinton, my husband and I perused the Kennebec up the River Road and on 201 on New Years Day. There was a single adult Bald Eagle sitting on the Ice near the Hinckley Mill.
Right below the Shawmut Dam from the boat launch, there were 75 +/- Common Goldeneyes diving. They were too far away to see if there were any Barrow's. Bring your scope to see them better.
