25 birders attended the Jan. 1st OFO outing around Peterborough today.
Only 29 species were recorded. The cold weather had sent many species to find food at bird feeders. 
On the Otonabee River between Trent University and Lakefield we saw Mallards, Common Goldeneyes, Common Mergansers, Long-tailed Duck, Red-necked Grebe and American Coot.
At Petroglyphs Provincial Park, workings of Black-backed Woodpeckers but no birds could be found. Sightings included Bald Eagle, Red-tailed Hawk,  Common Raven, Brown Creeper, Hairy Woodpecker, Red-breasted Nuthatch and Golden-crowned Kinglets.
Also seen today were 2 Ruffed Grouse, 2 flocks of Wild Turkeys, 2 Snow Bunting flocks, Pileated Woodpecker, Cooper's Hawk,  and several White-breasted Nuthatches.
