Waterfowl alert for Pea Island impoundments! I can't remember ever seeing this quantity of waterfowl here. North Pond was full, New field was full, and I never even made it to South Pond this morning. Absolutely amazing!
Al Hooks and I had Tundra Swans, Canada Geese, one Brant, one Snow Goose, Mallards, Black Ducks, Northern Pintail, Gadwall, American Wigeon, Eurasian Wigeon (2), Northern Shoveler, Blue-winged Teal (2), Green-winged Teal, Canvasback (1), Redheads, Ring-necked Ducks, Lesser Scaup, Bufflehead, Ruddy Ducks, Hooded Mergansers and Red-breasted Mergansers. Plus a "storm wigeon. "Plus coots and white pelicans. We missed the Common Goldeneye from yesterday.
At home (Manteo) I had a Northern Parula. At home (Southern Shores) the Broad-billed Hummingbird has been seen several times today.
