About a dozen Canada geese took off and flew west out of the park. The only other bird I saw was a male Northern Cardinal, although I did hear a couple of Tufted Titmice.
This afternoon I stopped again at Hopkinton State Park hoping to find a little bird activity in the trees. Someone was working to widen the access road. I didn't see any birds, so I decided to drive over to Farm Pond and see if the water had opened up in these warm temps (40s). The water had thawed quite a bit, but the parking lot was still completely snowed in. No stopping there.....so I drove into Cushing Memorial Park, where there was parking available.
House Sparrows and Black-Capped Chickadees were eating cracked corn that had been thrown on the snow. A White-Breasted Nuthatch was in a tree in front of the chapel, and I spotted two Red-Tailed Hawks soaring high above the park.
