Subject: Thousands!
At Wapanocca Wildlife Refuge yesterday late afternoon there were thousands
and thousands of ducks upon the lake, splashing and carrying on as if in
the middle of a northern summer.
Hundreds of Redwing Blackbirds flew about and sang as if the first
days of spring.
The sunlight angle made it very difficult to ID most of the ducks
but I did manage Northern Shovelers and Mallards among them.
Other highlights :
150+ American Coots
3 Great White Egrets
6 Great Blue Herons
1 Northern Harrier
2 Red Tailed Hawks
lots of small dark sparrows that were too fast
Just being there made it a great day to be among the living.
