The Eurasian Wigeon is still present in St. George Saturday morning 1/13 with a large group of Mallards roughly behind the fire station.

The sharp looking drake was continuing in Ripley Creek which flows into Tenants Harbor, St. George. The bird was associating with a large group of Mallards until being flushed by a young Bald Eagle when it relocated further out in Tenant’s Harbor. Best views were had by walking down Ripley Creek Road a short way and I’d recommend parking at the creek crossing along Rt 131 to not cause congestion on that narrow road.
