Black Duck at Thomas Point.

I picked a Black Duck for the title because I may have overlooked them in the past. They’re actually somewhat threatened and I’m lucky to see the ones I do, mostly at Thomas Point or Bombay Hook.

Nothing new this week, but the numbers of Canvasbacks and Tundra Swans is up. Only a few ducks at the point, which is probably because of the warm weather. It’s just started to cool a bit, so we’ll see what happens.
