Snow day for birding, Dec. 10, 2013

Today’s light snowfall (2-4 inches in the mocosocoBirds area) occurred during a time frame causing school closures as well as other public facilities. Feeder watching was the birding activity of the day for many. Steve Byland was fortunate to get a Baltimore Oriole at his feeder in Warren Twp. as well as two male eastern Towhees.

Alan Boyd eBirded waterfowl from Budd Lake today: 5 Northern Shovelers and 8 Common Mergansers along with a handful of Mallards, hundreds of Canada Geese as well as Ring-billed and Herring Gulls.

Birders should check the lakes and waterways before they freeze. The upcoming frigid weather forecast looks to put a lid on waterfowl activity for a while.
