American Wigeon at Oakley Street.

The weatherman predicted good weather today, so I went back to Blackwater. It was OK, but there’s still not the quantity of birds I’ve seen in the past. I blame the warm weather.

Even so, I did find a few interesting subjects and it was hardly a waste.

When I left Blackwater I stopped at Oakley street in Cambridge to see if the locals have been attracting the resident ducks with offerings of food, and I found a decent flock of Wigeons , along with few Canada Geese.
