Wood Duck at Quiet Waters

I started out at Possum Point this morning, but the sunrise was just so-so. There were plenty of birds, though, including my first Ospreys of the year. Hundreds of Canada Geese were flying North.

I stopped at Beach Road nest, and was surprised to find 14 Horned Grebes, a record for me. This area has been opened up, and looks like it will have future possibilities.

Quiet Waters was better than usual, with a few more ducks, including several Wood Ducks. A good day.
