March 7th, continued. Three Northern River Otters (Lutra canadensis) in the pond east of Route 207.





















The otters were diving below the ice and coming up with Bluegill (Lepomis macrochirus), one fish after another.



























Check out those teeth!












March 8th. A tree down across the trail just east of Raymond Brook Marsh, the result of high winds overnight that continued this morning.






March 10th. A fairyland: sunshine after sticky snow yesterday.
























At the pond east of Route 207, Ring-necked Ducks (Aythya collaris) have arrived.





















A pair of Hooded Mergansers (Lophodytes cucullaris) there too.



























March 11th. Lots of noisy American Crows (Corvis brachyrhyncos) at the marsh.









Lots of Common Grackles (Quiscalus quiscula) too.
