Wood Duck --photo by Lloyd Spitalnik 11/09

On 1/17/10 [yesterday] Jack Meyer sent a report of his early morning walk [with his regular companions] to eBirds: As usual for this time of year, waterfowl provided the best birdwatching opportunities, including one of our most spectacular [albeit not uncommon] ducks. Jack wrote:

On the Lake there is a patch of open water by the Bow Bridge Island. Today [1/17/10] this held two male & one female Hooded Merganser and a male Wood Duck, as well as many Mallards.
