It has always been my assumption that WYCO Lake's proximity to the Missouri River contributes to the appearance of such waterfowl, Harlequin Duck, included . . .
how 'bout a King Eider???

Wyandotte County Lake is reaching it's peak for waterfowl with 21 species of waterfowl being seen this morning. Well over 10,000 Snow Geese are present as well as about 60 Trumpeter Swans and a single Tundra Swan. Eagles are perched all over the edge of the ice with most of them having a goose carcass nearby. At one scan i had 57 Bald Eagles. I look forward to this scene every winter and am always amazed at the awesome spectacle of Snow Geese as eagles flush them into giant plumes.
