I finally saw some birds worth reporting this week.
Yesterday by the back of the Swanzey airport on 32 (back by neighbors) I saw a kestrel. I also saw two ringneck ducks on the small pond their.
Sadly most of the unusual waterfowl on the airport road are gone except for mallards, black ducks, and hooded mergansers in the brushy area. (Last week when driving their a hawk flew across the road low to the ground but I could not find it to get a good view to ID ir).
Today I seen a FOY yellow bellied sapsucker in Richmond. This week phoebe returned to Richmond despite them being in Swanzey for a couple weeks.
A couple odd but not rare sightings from last week were a mockingbird in Richmond, picking around under my feeders. (They are common in suburbanized parts of surrounding towns but I rarely see them in Richmond. Also a Red Winged Blackbird whose wing patch was grey was photographed by my father in Richmond.
