Hi all,

 

Yesterday Christian Hagenlocher and I found the “RMBS ducks and geese” enjoying the open water in the slough east of Highway 143 near the lock and dam.

 

We saw:

 

 Canada Geese (hundreds, but didn’t find any obvious Cackling)

White-fronted Geese (2)

Mallards (hundreds)

Black Duck (1)

Pintail (4)

Green-winged Teal (couple dozen)

Gadwall (several dozen)

 

And a few Eagles and Turkey Vultures

 

Stay warm!
