This morning, Nov. 30, I had a Carolina Wren at my feeder on Conger Street. Later, my husband, John, and I went to the Lakefield Sewage Lagoons and saw three female Bufflehead ducks. On our way back to Peterborough, there was a a possible Ross’s Goose in with a large group of Canada Geese just south of Lakefield. At first we thought it was a Snow Goose but the size (in comparison to nearby Mallards) seemed too small.  Later, we had a male and female Hooded Merganser below Lock 24.

N.B. This may be the same Carolina Wren that has been turning up at Luke Berg’s house on nearby Benson Ave. D.M.
