I got stopped by Canada geese crossing Butternut Ridge Road this morning on my way in to work so I scanned the pond/lake at New Russia Township Nature Preserve while I was sitting there. Seeing there were ducks mixed in with the geese, once those crossing the road were safely past, I stopped in the drive (gates are locked for the season) to scan the ducks with my binoculars. I definitively saw:
2 male American Wigeon 2 male and 1 female Rind Necked Duck and 1 male and 1 female Bufflehead.
There were other females at which I did not get good looks, so probably more of these species were there (if not other species). I didn't have time to walk in past the gate, just a quick look from by the road.
