Ring-necked Ducks Finally Return

About time.

Right around the beginning of the school year I start keeping my eye on the local lakes expecting to see the ducks returning for the Winter. Deep down I know they won't be here for a another couple months but I keep hoping something will show up early. This slow year found the Ring-necked Ducks show up a couple of weeks late. Typically, they arrive during the last week of October.

This first small flock just before sunset still made me smile a bit as I was on the way home. Time for their buddies to join them soon.
