And More Ducks
Today lots of ducks were on the lake and most of the ice has melted. We had about 60 ducks of various species including Hooded Mergansers, Common Mergansers, Buffleheads, Ring-necked Ducks, Mallards, Black Ducks and Wood Ducks. Above is a male Hooded Merganser displaying where he raises his crest to reveal the white "fan." We sat on the deck in the morning with a cup of coffee and looked through our scopes at the duck bonanza. Wonderful!
