As I was traveling to Mass yesterday morning, I spotted a lone Ruddy Duck on a small pond north of 92 hwy.  It is at the intersection of 156th St. and Short road, not far from the Crows' Creek portion of Smithville Lake.

It surprised me to see it in mid-summer and it was still there on my way back through....

Stay cool....
