MA - Quabbin Beaver, Fox Sparrow - 11/20
Had a late afternoon drive out to New Salem followed by a walk down to Quabbin Reservoir from Gate 22. The walk very pleasant and peaceful highlighted by a Fox Sparrow feeding with a relatively large flock of Dark-eyed Juncos about a 1/2 mile from the gate. The reservoir itself held about 8 Common Loons and 4 Horned Grebes from this vantage point, and I was treated to great views of an inquisitive Beaver just offshore.
