The Scaup was gone on Saturday morning but the two swallows cruising over a small section of open water on Round Meadow Pond (still 75% ice covered)was not a big surprise. The fact both were not Tree Swallows was a surprise, one Tree and the other a Barn Swallow, the Barn likely my earliest arrival date for the area!.
