It's a quiet time now with not much to tell in Prospect. The lake offers the only real interest.

First thing I noticed on the lake were three DOUBLE CRESTED CORMORANTS.One of the birds showed prominent ear tufts.  Single Drake RING NECKED DUCK within the shadow of three sisters Islands and Drake Red BREASTED Merganser by Western shore now provide " real" excitement. Hohum?

A late word tonite. That GOSHAWK continues to prowl and mostly in the late afternoon ( 530) with Tripper Paul again the lucky observer with a few others,seeing the bird by the feeders; only that the feeders are gone.Will this be incentive - absent feeders- for the Goshawk to leave ?  Maybe .
