Following some errands in Middletown, I birded the Bashakill with a bit of a late start. It was once again cold and windy. That said, it was quite birdy. My main focus this morning was on waterfowl. The list of what I saw is below. Besides the waterfowl, Rusty Blackbirds, Purple Finches, White-throated Sparrows, Golden-crowned Kinglets, American Pipits, Hermit Thrush and Yellow-rumped Warblers were all seen, most of them abundant. Besides the waterfowl listed below, Scott Baldinger and Karen Miller reported 3 Gadwall before I arrived.

Canada Geese – 300
Mallard – 168
Green-winged Teal – 100 (probably more)
Wood Duck – 53
Black Duck – 26
Northern Pintail – 7
Pied-billed Grebe – 1
