I spent the weekend in a rented "chalet" at the north (?) end of Lake Massawipi near Ayer's Cliff and although I didn't get out to do any real birding I was pleased to find that the enormous crop of fruit on the lakeshore trees and shrubs (crab apples or cherries? not sure) was attracting large numbers of Bohemian Waxwings (Jaseur boréal). The largest flock that I encountered numbered close to 300 birds but I can't say whether there were more in the area or not. The birds were almost continuously present throughout my three day stay from Feb 27th to March 1st. - Paul Prior
