Buffleheads at Greenbury Point

The promised rain/snow hadn’t materialized by 9:00, so I decided to take a chance and see what was going on at Possum Point/Greenbury Point.
It was really too cloudy for decent photos, but I had nothing else to do, and there’s always a chance of getting lucky.
There were many active Cedar Waxwings, and plenty of ducks. I did see a nice hawk, but had no opportunity to get a photo.

Canada Goose

It’s not hard to find flocks of Canada Geese in the morning at this time of year.

This Flicker was hard to see in the low light.

Great Blue Heron

This Great Blue Heron is using a vacant Osprey nest for a perch.

The 2-3 foot waves seemed to make no difference to this pair of Lesser Scaup

Ruddy Ducks and Buffleheads seem to be the most common ducks in the area.

  1. I’m still jealous that you see so many Cedar Wax Wing birds…I am too way out of shape to do any birding other than what I can see outside my sliding glass door (surgery results, partly). I am glad you were “nuts” enough to venture out and snap some pics!!
