Hello birders, Just for kicks today, and who doesn't get a kick out of buffeting winds and downed trees, I went out and checked local water holes. Maybe something would seek refuge there, I thought - gulls, waterfowl, etc.
Mostly western Fairfax, and a little eastern Loudoun County. There were Ring-necked Ducks at two locations, and Green-winged Teal at one. Details below.

Also Gadwalls in the lake.
