Prospect WWXbills in the mead

Bobbi Manian reports winter's continuing delight of WHITE-WINGED CROSSBILLS, first I heard this species visiting the Butterfly Meadow on Lookout. They are on the move, true to their nomadic nature.

The other observation to note, by my own,  is that this has been a very good winter for HOODED MERGANSERS on Prospect Lake, higher numbers above average, with 21 today , 9 at West Island.
