Long Tailed Ducks at Thomas Point.

Things are a little different this year. I’m laying low to avoid crowds, and generally staying close to home. It’s actually working out well, because I’m getting to know these places a little better. Even the smallest places are large enough to have several distinct areas, and I’ve been looking in the same places all the time. Now, I’m checking out some new area and finding birds. The ducks aren’t really here yet, so all is well. Quiet Waters is a large park, and there’s still more places to check out.
