Elsewhere in Gill and Turner's Falls, still lots of late bird song including Hermit Thrush and Winter Wrens singing from the hemlock woods, and the occasional Louisiana Waterthrush still singing in Gill. Fish Crows continue to feature in Turner's Falls around Unity Park and the residential areas south-east of there.
The Turner's Falls power canal has been relatively quiet but has had a lingering Great Egret for about a week, and four Double-crested Cormorants in the rain this morning.
