Today there was a RED-NECKED GREBE at Pleasant Creek Lake north of Palo. It was hanging out near a rock fishing jetty near the South end of the dam. There was a COMMON MERGANSER and a pair of GREATER SCAUP at the very north end of the North Arm of the lake. There has been a disturbing lack of waterfowl on Pleasant Creek Lake this fall!
The Marsh at Power Plant Rd. and Hollenbeck Rd. had the usual large number of TRUMPETER SWANS, a few TUNDRA SWANS and a few dabbling ducks including two AMERICAN BLACK DUCKS.
