I’m a little late with my Saturday bird-watching post but still wanted to share my duck pictures. I saw ducks plus a few other birds on my walk Thursday.
Happily, I walked down to the lake to see if any birds were present. Lately, as I drive by the park, no birds appear in my view from the highway and side roads.
The sunny day meant changing my angle to get photos where the sunlight glare didn’t bounce off the water: Still not complaining about warm and bright November sunshine after too many days of gloomy gray skies!
This duck (My duck-naming knowledge stops with mallards) hung out apart from the other groups. Is he something else? There were geese, just not in the water. Canada geese are year-long residents of our area and sometimes considered nuisance birds. They did get in the water later when I was on the far side of the lake.
At the park, I also noticed snowbirds, a hawk (too far away to identify), crows, more robins, and a few woodpeckers. My usual feathered friends were hanging out around our yard: cardinals, snowbirds, sparrows, and a downy woodpecker. It’s also the time of year when Starlings gather on the power lines. Can’t help but notice those.
Linking my post up with the Bird D’Pot. What birds did you notice?
