Subject: [ALBIRDS] Slow Waterfowl Day at Waterloo
What with all the waterfowl rarities popping up in North Alabama and
Tennessee this season, Sylvia and I slipped over to Waterloo yesterday
before the rain to see whether there might be something interesting
lingering there. It was 45 degrees with a strong SSE wind, which must
have inspired most of the ducks to fly elsewhere, if they were here in
the first place. Very low water in Second Creek. There were a few
dozen mallards and hooded mergansers, about 30 ring-necked ducks, and
five goldeneye. No loons, no horned grebes, and no scoters. Even coot
and pied-billed grebe numbers were low. We did flush a bald eagle from
a perch about 30 feet over the road on LC1. Estimated 90 white pelicans
at their usual roosting place across the river from the town observation

Good birding,
