>From the blind this afternoon, I found at least two Red-breasted Mergansers in the center of the wetlands close to the edge of the ice. I got pictures of both of them, with his neck stretched upward. One of the Red-breasted Mergansers flew off right before I left. I lost track of him, so I'm not sure if he was just circling the area or departing. There were also around a dozen Common Mergansers. Waterfowl is returning, but there wasn't quite the variety as this past Sunday. Also there:
Canada Geese, Mallard, Am. Coot, Northern Shoveler, Bufflehead, Hooded Merganser, and either Ring-necked Duck or Scaup(they were sleeping with their heads tucked a distance away).
There were 2 Golden-crowned Kinglets singing back and forth along the creek near Anderson Lakes Blvd. I got a picture of one with his crown tilted right towards me. I was hoping for Fox Sparrow but still no luck. I'm sure they'll return by the weekend.
