Mixed flock at Roger’s Pond

I went to Roger’s Pond Park in near my home in Kennebunk, Maine, USA again yesterday morning early to look for the semi-resident pair of Bald Eagles. They were not at home. There were, however, a good sampling of smaller birds feeding in a stand of berries across the river from the park. The birds were mostly pretty far for anything but record shots, and were mostly buried in the berry tangle, but still. We have here clockwise from the upper left: American Robin and Cedar Waxwing, Belted Kingfisher (not, of course, feeding in the berries but in the trees right behind the berry stand), Northern Cardinal, Catbird (very early for Maine), Eastern Bluebird, and a poor shot what looks to me to be a Hermit Thrush…all but impossibly early in southern Maine in February. In addition to these there were also several ducks on the river, including Mallard, Common Merganser, and Golden-eye. Sony Rx10iv at 600mm equivalent.
