Winsor Dam (with Bald Eagle flying by), Oct 21, 2014
A nor'easter continues to slowly move up the coast, throwing rain/drizzle in from the east and cranking up the north and northeast winds. The winds started yesterday but really increased today. A stop by Winsor Dam yesterday evening didn't produce any waterfowl and another stop this evening produced just three Double crested Cormorants on the very choppy water. On my way home I saw some geese dropping into a field off Middle St and Hadley so I made a quick stop and found a flock of 230+ Canada Geese but no unusual geese among them. So far nothing unusual from the storm but I wouldn't be surprised if something good shows up. Downed waterfowl are the most likely but a late shorebird, an unusual gull or some other coastal species is always possible with a storm like this. Time will tell I guess.
