Stockbridge Reserve (members only) - pair of Buzzard circled high above the reserve before drifting east. At the feeders, female Siskin, pair of Bullfinch & Reed Bunting. Confrontation between two Canada Geese resulted in them low flying across the water with one bird still hanging on to the tail of the other.
