I tried Lake Artemesia yesterday with mixed results. There was very little open water, so most of the birds were out in the center of the lake, and it was hard to get good looks. A few Hooded Mergansers took pity on me and put on a show quite close.
I stopped at Thomas Point on the way home and got some decent shots in the cove. The birds at the point were too far out.
Today I checked Possum Point early. and it didn’t look like much, so I went straight to Kent Narrows, for a change of pace. I started at the West side, which was kind of slow. I could see there were closer birds on the East side, so I went over the bridge. There were some Long Tailed ducks in range, and I got a few decent shots.
I stopped again at Thomas Point, and had about the same luck there.
