Ring Necked Ducks at Lake Artemesia.

It’s been almost a week since I posted anything. Weather accounts for a day or two, and a shortage of birds is to blame for the rest.  I know there have been more birds in previous years, but some variation must be normal

I’ve been staying on this side of the bridge to avoid possible traffic problems with  the current construction. I will get there soon because there’s a lot of good spots to check.

There’s a lot of feisty Swans, so I look for the action shots.
