I am in Pennsylvania today but I’ve gotten 2 messages from both Dave Carr and Bill Parkin about a massive gathering of ducks on Lake Frederick this morning. It’s probably worth a trip there if you want some good late season waterfowl.
The largest group are Scaup (probably 250 Greater & Lesser). There are also Buffleheads, Northern Shovelers, Mallards, Gadwall, Redheads, Long-tailed Ducks, Ruddy Ducks, & Hooded & Red-breasted Mergansers. Also Bonaparte Gulls, Horned Grebes, Double-crested Cormorants, & a few Canada Geese.
