It was a foggy morning, so I waited ’til it started to lift before I went to Thomas Point.
I checked the small cove, looking for the Wood Duck, who wasn’t present. I did see 3 American Wigeons, a bird I haven’t see much at Thomas Point. I didn’t find the Wood Duck.
The weather was better than yesterday, warmer and less windy, and many of the ducks were closer to shore than usual. I didn’t see anything cool, like a Loon or an Eider, but it’s always fun to watch the ducks feed on a nice day.
This Scaup is eating a mussel.
It’s hard to pass up a Redhead.
Many Buffleheads were moving around the area.
This Mallard flew in from the bay.
Many of the birds took to the air when this Bald Eagle flew over the cove.
There were several Black Ducks near shore.
3 American Wigeons were in the cove.
Two Common Goldeneyes were feeding together.
Surf Scoters were numerous.
A small flock of Tundra Swans flew by, heading South.
I saw only one Long Tailed Duck.
If you wait long enough, you’ll see a Song Sparrow hiding in the rip-rap.
This Lesser Scaup was paddling slowly by.
