I did a 1 hour survey for the CT Bird Atlas this morning at Lake Saltonstall. Highlight were a flock of nearly two dozen COMMON REDPOLLS feeding on black birch catkins on the white trail where the downed trees from the August storm are still blocking the trail. Many waterfowl on the upper lake including more than 100 Hooded Mergansers. eBird checklist - https://ebird.org/checklist/S77922648
Happy Owlidays everyone.
