Nesting begins

Red winged Blackbird, Covey WMA
Common Grackle, Quabbin Park

Made another trip by Quabbin Park and Covey WMA. No real changes from the birds of yesterday but some nice looks at some of them nonetheless. The ice is ever so slowly leaving the reservoir and the Common Mergansers continue to take advantage. Hooded Mergansers and Wood Ducks continue to check out the various nest boxes. Red winged Blackbirds and Common Grackles are gathering nest material and Canada Geese and Common Ravens are all ready sitting on nests. Just the beginning of the many breeding birds to come.
