Waterfowl migration is definitely under way here in Snyder! Starting last week, Faylor Lake has been hosting numerous duck species. With much of the lake being 2-6 feet deep, it offers plenty of food for dabblers as well as some diving ducks. Today my brother Ryan and I observed 40 Green-winged Teal, 4 Northern Shovelers, 35 Hooded Mergansers, 38 Ring-necked Ducks, 12 Redheads, 3 Horned Grebes, 8 Buffleheads, and several Lesser Scaup, Gadwall, Wood Ducks, and American Wigeons.
Happy spring birding!
