Jan 18th Prospect

IN WIFI android tablet format due to being away from Brooklyn ***************************************************************

From Rafael: Peter:

Despite the low temperatures, PP was more or less active. The feeders had a good number of Pine Siskins, and I got close views of the drake Red-breasted Merganser (photos taken). Two Hooded Mergansers were seen at the upper pool. And a Merlin flew over the Peninsula
