Field Trip to Wellington Upground Reservoir

Sunday, November 23, 2014. 9 a.m.

Leader: Erik Bruder

9 Birders, 36 Species


Two Cackling Geese amid hundreds of Canada Geese were the highlight of the WCAS field trip to Wellington Upground Reservoir.  Canada Geese, American Coots and Ruddy Ducks were the most numerous of the species on the reservoir.  A Bald Eagle called, was located in the woods by the reservoir, eventually circling and disturbing a perched Red-tailed Hawk.  A Pileated Woodpecker called as well from the woods.  After a week of icy weather, this day was calm and around fifty degrees. Thanks to Erik Bruder for leading and for entering the results on eBird.
