Walter Greene and I observed part of the westward flight. They were flying when we got there and when we left and as far up and down Dayton Road as we could see. Amos Tilton who works in the area said thousands more were feeding to the East and North. Nov. 29 I saw six Bufflehead feeding. Gulls were trying to rob them. Several times I saw one take flight with greater success than terns. They are faster at turning and in straight flight. Ruddy Ducks are not rare any more. Homer Harmon said about 200 stayed on Lost Lake last Winter. S.L. Griffeth says there are hundreds in Lawrence's Marsh this Winter. Nov. 11 I could stand on Swan Marsh beach and see, without turning my body, more Laughing Gulls than 1 saw in my first 20 years of birding in the county. Looking straight off shore from 50 to several hundred would be within the focus of my binoculars, and looking up or down shore from several hundred to several thousand in focus. Among them were at least one Ring-billed Gull and about 1% terns of four species. Nov. 21 I saw 600 to 800 pipits on a few acres of pasture. They were actively feeding from place to place. I followed them about an hour. Had there been only a tenth as many 1 would say without doubting that I had never before seen so many Sprague's Pipits. I am greatly disappointed not to have identified them beyond doubt. All stragglers from then were Sprague's. This is the fifth day of the duck hunting season. I heard more duck shooting on several afternoons than in the five days of legal shooting. More in November than the last two whole seasons combined. They would shoot with unplugged guns for hours and so frequently there was no time to retrieve cripples. A goose hunter told me he saw men shooting ducks just as if the
