I stopped by the Rubbermaid Factory pond on Rt. 11 at Apple Valley Road in the Kernstown area, just south of Winchester. A nice showing of waterfowl.

2 Snow Geese
500ish Canada Geese
4 Mallards
15 Ring-necked Ducks
3 N. Shovelers
7 Hooded Mergs
2 Am. Wigeon
6 Gadwall

I couldn't pick out a Cackling Goose, but I didn't have my scope and didn't have much time.

A later stop at Lakeside Lake next to the Bowman Library on Tasker Road was a complete bust, as it was completely frozen. Not even a Canada Goose on the surrounding lawn.

FYI, my home turf of Lake Frederick has been devoid of most waterfowl this season.
