January 100 Species Challenge

Two trips out into the cold this weekend yielded me an additional 6 new birds for January. Saturday I visited Fernald Preserve, which is a sure thing to find Northern Harriers and clean up on a few ducks absent from the list. Then Sunday I was off to Gilmore Ponds where I struck out totally on any new birds. Other than any deep reservoir or quarry will be totally ice free, everything else from what I’ve observed are all frozen over.

  1. Northern Shoveler
  2. Ring-necked Duck
  3. Mute Swan
  4. Northern Harrier
  5. Savannah Sparrow
  6. Brown Creeper

Total for January: 63
