The weatherman was calling for rain today, so I slept in late. Imagine my surprise to see a slightly cloudy day, rapidly becoming sunny.
I went to Possum Point first, in hopes of finding some interesting birds, but I had little luck. There were a few birds, but nothing exciting.
I went to Thomas Point next, which was better, but it’s still the same old birds. Good light gave me a few good pics.
I finished up at Quiet Waters, which was nearly barren. There’s still a lot of ice in the river, so it may be few days before the ducks show up.
I don’t often see Foxes in mid-morning.
I heard this Carolina Chickadee long before I saw him.
This Redhead is hanging out with the Canvasbacks.
Many Tundra Swans were hanging out, apparently loafing.
I was surprised to find a single American Wigeon flying right at me.
Canvasback hen, close up.
A few Scaup were mixed in with the Canvasbacks.
A few Buffleheads were swimming nearby.
This Wood Duck is hanging out in the cove.
A few Black Ducks were in the area.
