Mergansers Photo

James Hall at Forrester captures male and female hooded mergansers hanging around MWRA discharge area for nutrients. Wildlife have had a very hard time finding food. Besides the dead GBheron, Kathy found another goose today unable to escape the bitter weather, but GB Cronker is alive and well, and and preening today at Yates Pond. Come have a look.
Please grab some yellow corn after Sunday in a tin barrel by MWRA project to scatter by Yates, found by the Reservation entry bridge. Corn Can will be just inside the gates during the day.
