A light snow fell as I walked through Olmsted Park. I didn’t see a single bird in Ward’s Pond. It wasn’t until Willow Pond that I ran into the Canada geese.
I was hoping to see some hooded mergansers to add to my life list.
On to Leverett Pond where I was thrilled to find four common mergansers.
After watching a ring-necked duck get killed and eaten last week, it was nice to see a few more ring-necked ducks, this time in a group.
We are firmly in the midst of winter but one of our shrubs, witch-hazel, is already blooming.
