Out in Springfield in pursuit of TWB research leads (found one, I think), I decided to take advantage of the great weather and stopped at Quabbin Reservoir. My first time there--I didn't realize how developed it was. Walked from the dam up the hill to the observation tower and back. What a gorgeous gorgeous day.
I came to see bald eagles and I saw one. An immature just sitting on the ice out of good photo range... But there was a group of common mergansers near the dam and they generously came out of the water for a moment.
