For the last few weeks (especially the last week or so) I have seen dozens (seems like a hundred or more) of migrating waterfowl on Shawood Lake In Novi (a mile north of 12 Oaks Mall from my living room window where I have a spotting scope setup) including
Scaups (mostly Lesser) Ring Neck ducks Redhead ducks Mergansers Bufflehead
plus the usual Mallards, Canada Geese, Mute Swans, etc.
I fully expect the migration to almost stop this week when the temperatures get back to normal..
Oh.. and this morning there were 3 Great Blue Heron on my shore (about 35 ft from my window) ... majestic..
