**rare in winter | a very late bird calling (giving a harsh scolding 'chek' [jett?]) from the phragmites near the Big Sit spot. This is very close to the location of the bird here on 7 December 2013 but it seems hard to image the same bird has gone undetected for the past month.

flying over the parking lot at the beginning of the walk

1

lone bird calling as it flew over the North Meadow
