It's a good day to be waterfowl in eastern NC, apparently. The ag fields near exit 548 are hosting lots of Tundra Swans and Canada Geese, and a couple of binocular scans produced 4 Greater White-fronted Geese. Hundreds of geese were streaming in as I pulled away, hopefully bringing more potential to the roadside flock. Not much on the pond, other than a flock of mostly Ring-billed Gulls, and about 2 dozen Ruddy Ducks. Mallards and Rock Pigeons mixed in with the field-side gulls, but not much else of note.
