I had to work this morning, so I missed the early show, but I got to Thomas Point around 10:30 and met Graeme. We spent a lot of time looking for unusual ducks, but found mostly the usual suspects. A Ruddy Duck swam in quite close to shore and entertained us for quite a while.
Canvasbacks are still rafting up in large numbers.
This Ruddy Duck was very close to shore, foraging in the rocks.
A small flock of Lesser Scaup was moving around the point.
I was lucky to capture this Common Goldeneye in flight.
This is the first American Coot I’ve seen at the point.
This Red Bellied Woodpecker was feeding right above us.
We didn’t ee this Mallard until she flew.
