It was a phenomenal day (well, maybe not by Lake Champlain standards) for waterbird fallout on the Connecticut River north of the Wilder Dam today. Highlights included a female Common Eider in Norwich and a Red-throated Loon in Wilder. Other noteworthy finds were 10 Red-breasted Mergansers, a tight flock of >125 scoters (all 3 species, but predominantly Black), a female Long-tailed Duck, 15 Bufflehead, and 3 Horned Grebes -- all at Kilowatt South Park in Wilder. Also, two separate small groups of Common Redpolls in Norwich.
It doesn't get much better than that in this part of the state!
