On January first, there was a large group of gulls on Round Meadow Pond, one Iceland "Kumlien's" Gull was present, but no other uncommon species were present. Since the cold snap has hit the open water has frozen and fewer gulls are present at the pond. However the cold snap a has increased our visiting feeder birds. Approximately 50 American Goldfinches and 12 Pine Siskins were at our feeders this morning.
