Red Breasted Merganser at Thomas Point

It was very cloudy this morning, so I didn’t leave the house ’til 8:30. That worked out, as Thomas Point was pretty dead through 9:00. A few swans passed over, an eagle was perched in the trees, and several small flocks of Buffleheads were in the area. The Merganser was a singleton, and first of the season.

Ring Billed Gull

Only a few Ring Billed Gulls were in the area.

Tundra Swan 79

Tundra Swan

Tundra Swans tend to stay near the shore, where many locals feed them.

Red Breasted Merganser

This Red Breasted Merganser flew by very quickly, and I didn't recognize it until I checked it on the LCD screen.
