|The offending sheet of ice that I fell on almost a month ago...damn you ice! Much easier to see without snow on it!|
In the afternoon I decided to try my luck along the Gate 8 road at Quabbin trying to turn up a crossbill, grosbeak or roosting owl. I struck out on all of those despite a few miles of walking. Only had seven species total for my time there. The interior forests of Quabbin in the winter can be very desolate places indeed.
