Gadwall at Thomas Point

It was a promising morning, warm enough and fairly clear skies. Possum Point was disappointing, with no ducks at all, and very few birds of any kind.

Thomas Point was much more active, with hundreds of ducks flying  about and a coupe of good photo ops.

The theory is that the coming bad weather will bring us more birds. We’ll see.


Herring Gull

Herring Gulls are often quite noisy.


I haven’t seen many Gadwalls at Thomas Point.

I don’t often get flight shots of Ruddy Ducks.

This Double Crested Cormorant was the only image I got at Possum Point.

There are probably 30-40 Tundra Swans wintering in the area.


A large flock of Canvasbacks flew off shortly after I arrived.
