Subject: [JERSEYBI] Absence of Ruddy Ducks at Assunpink
With all the fuss about the swans at Assunpink this winter there has been
little discussion about Ruddy Ducks (or lack thereof). Every fall and
winter until this one Ruddy Ducks have been the most numerous duck species
on Lake Assunpink except for a period in mid January for a few weeks when
Common Mergansers hold that title. So far in 2018 I have not seen a single
one. Others have reported a couple. In previous years it was not uncommon
to have several hundred daily. Something has changed
