We did a mini-tour of the coastal ponds of the northern part of my county today for ducks. All the usuals were around, but they seem to have changed ponds since last week. It's funny how the pond that last week held so many wigeon and coot, this week had mostly hoodies. I still haven't found any canvasbacks or redheads - maybe it's still too early or I'm not looking in the best spots.
I'm sharing just this one pic... wigeon are a favorite, mostly for their silly little call.
Tomorrow I hope to find some salt water ducks - mergansers and bufflehead and long-tailed ducks. Maybe that snowy owl finally, too.
