|Winsor Dam at Quabbin early evening, Mar 15, 2012|
Although today was a bit cooler than the last few days the temperature near 50 was still above normal for this time of year and will only be one of a couple cooler days before it warms up again starting this weekend. I was able to make a brief stop at Hadley Cove on my way to work and the only birds of note there were three Wood Ducks. On my way home I stopped briefly at Winsor Dam to see if anything was around at the end of the day. The 'gull patrol' boats were way out chasing gulls off the water so I was not expecting much. However I did manage to pick out a flock of 59 Canada Geese heading north as well as a pair of Common Mergansers close into shore. In addition the Bald Eagle was sitting on the nest with its head just barely visible.
