Ruddy Ducks were everywhere today, found in every cove along the North Shore Drive. The Lake View Beach area is now open and in addition to Ruddy Ducks, there were Common Mergansers, Coots, & Buffleheads. A Common Loon was seen off of Nealey's Point looking toward the 528 bridge. Windsurfer Point only had 3 Greater Scaup. Watts Bay, in the cove on the left, had Buffleheads, Ruddy Ducks, Greater Scaup, and Common Mergansers.
