Redhead Makes for a New Winter Sighting

Been a slow year at the local lakes. Everywhere else, too, as I have pointed out in the past. Some years we have hundreds of Ring-necked Ducks and dozens of Lesser Scaup in one spot but this year I might find as much as 70 total. We do have a pair of Northern Shovelers hiding for most of the day but no other interesting things. Yeah, I love a few Blue-winged Teal, but...

I headed out to get groceries and scanned the small flock and finally found a new species out on the lake. A pair of Redhead. Trying to stay hidden while resting but I see you!


Still have yet to get any neighborhood Goldfinches, Gadwall, or Cedar Waxwings. Sigh. Guess I will take what I can get.
