This morning there were 2 Cackling Geese along with 38 Canada Geese on Lake Frederick. Pics of one of them can be seen at https://ebird.org/checklist/S61293896 . Also present were 5 Bufflehead and an adult Bald Eagle Flew over. Earlier this week there was a Merlin posted up right beside the boat launch and then harassing the other birds. Waterfowl has been picking up a bit this past week, with Gadwall, American Wigeon, Pintail, Ruddy Duck, and Mallard also putting in appearances at one time or another.
