Subject: [CT Birds] 12/24/20 - Branford, Lake Saltonstall waterfowl numbers continuing to build, plus COMMON REDPOLLS
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 -

Happy Owlidays everyone.
