I spent the bulk of my birding time this Sunday morning in New Hampton, NY. I picked up a few first of the year birds while I was out: Wood Duck (4), Ring-necked Duck (1), and Common Grackle (2). It was quite birdy out and I put together a nice list of 22 species in a relatively short period of time:
