Waterfowl are beginning to arrive. Collins Lake is just starting to open up.
There were two pairs of Hooded Mergansers there this morning. Canada Geese
are slowly building up even though the Lake is still about 90% frozen (as of 8
a.m. this morning). Yesterday there were 55 geese. Today there were 70.

At the Niskayuna Railroad station there were 6 American Wigeon (2 days earlier
than my average spring arrivals for Schenectady County) and a Wood Duck
(latest first sighting fro SCHE; 10 days late).
