Late yesterday afternoon there were two beautiful male Common Goldeneyes on the larger of two private ponds on Ridgeville Road (Hwy 27) in Ridgeville, SC. Thanks to Aija Konrad for spotting them.
The owner is protective of his property so if you go please stay on the shoulder of the road. Beware of the large trucks driving by also. The afternoon sun was pretty brutal, but the white on the ducks and the bold whilte cheek patch stood out.
