12/29 Orange. Did a brief survey this morning, of my local spots- Old
Tavern Rd. recreation fields, Crosby Pond, Indian Lake and Lake Wepawaug.
Highlights were at Crosby Pond with continuing Northern Pintail ducks (2
pairs now-not just one pair) and a Wood duck (drake) there.
Hiding in the corner at Old Tavern Rd pond recreation field was the
resident Great blue heron.
Not much at Indian Lake. Lake Wepawaug had about 400 (conservative
estimate) Canada Geese-not able to decipher any unusual identities. (full
reports on ebird).
Will watch for a return of the Pink Footed goose that appeared at Crosby
pond last January.
