Secret Location 2/14/12: Ducks

We probably saw a couple of dozen species of waterfowl. I should have been more organized, more diligent taking photos. I got wrapped up just watching them. Then it became more overcast and I went for my regular prescription glasses. The case was missing from my shirt pocket. I apparently lost them on the trail, so we spent half the day backtracking, trying to find them. No luck. But when we got back to the car they were in my camera case. Lorna was a little cranky, but helpful. A mystery to me.



A professional bird guy has I.D'd the bottom picture as an immature Shoveler.

Great pix, Gunnar. Glad you "found" your specs. Too bad about the no bikes allowed sign. Maybe you can make up for that by riding the McLean to the liquor store.

I don't think it was bicycle hostile. They had 2 1/2" of rain a few days ago and the trails were mud.
