Dave Williams joined me in leading Joppa Flats' Wednesday Morning
Birding program on to Plum Island -- the north end and points south.
Skies were cloudy to partly cloudy to clear; temps 32-40 F.; and winds
SW-NW/5-15 mph and building.  Passerines were in short supply, but
outside of that, we had some pretty "good" birds.

Our list:

Brant (7) - Emerson Rocks.
Canada Goose - common.
Mallard (6) - Bill Forward Pool (BFP).
American Black Duck - common.
Common Eider (~ 40) - ~ 15, north end; ~ 25, seven ocean.
White-winged Scoter (4) - north end.
Black Scoter (3) - 1, north end; 2, seven ocean.
Long-tailed Duck (~ 15) - ~ 10, north end; 5, seven ocean.
Common Goldeneye (3) - 1, north end; 2, Bar Head ocean.
Red-breasted Merganser (4) - 3, north end; 1, seven ocean.
Horned Grebe (4) - seven ocean.
Sanderling (~ 50) - seven beach.
Dunlin (~ 80) - seven beach.
Ring-billed Gull (2) - 1, north end; 1, seven beach.
Herring Gull (6) - 3, north end; 3, seven beach.
Great Black-backed Gull (1) - north end.
Red-throated Loon (1) - north end.
Common Loon (2) - 1, north end; 1, seven ocean.
[Northern Harrier (3) - marsh sw PI Bridge w. parking lot.]
Northern Harrier (1) - over Middens.
[Bald Eagle (2) - imm., 1 perched beneath refuge boat ramp Osprey
platform, 1 perched on snag edge of marsh; both sw PI Bridge w. parking
lot.]
Bald Eagle (1) - ad. on prey in marsh w. North Pool dike (presumably a
duck) after having put up a sizeable flock of black ducks; seen from
Hellcat dike.
[Rough-legged Hawk (1) - hovering over marsh s. PI Bridge w. parking lot.]
Rough-legged Hawk (1) - hovering over Cross Farm Hill.
Snowy Owl (2) - 1, perched in tree on edge of marsh, S-curves; 1, first
seen in marsh immediately w. BFP (later spooked by aforementioned eagle
on a flyby; owl landed atop one of BFP blind pines).
Northern Shrike (1) - n. edge South Field atop red cedar, ~ 50 yards
from refuge road.
European Starling - large flock on wires leading to PI Bridge from east.

Next week, January 15, Wednesday Morning Birding will visit Cape Ann.
Meet at 9:30 at Gloucester Crossing in front of Marshalls. If you want
to hitch a ride in one of Joppa's vans, meet at Joppa Flats for an 8:30
departure.  Any questions about Joppa programs, give Dave Larson or
David Moon a call at (978) 462-9998.
