I counted the ducks at three Joplin area
on 12-3-13. I imagine that they will depart
the lagoons freeze over later this
Carl Junction lagoon was fogged in. I didn't
have a chance to
return later. So, just three of four lagoons
on the survey.
120. Fifty-five of them were a very small
They were about 1/2 the size of our
maintenance worker spooked them and the
small ones split up as a flock from the large
Bald Eagle adult
1 Enjoying the
ducks too, I suppose.
Bufflehead and Ruddy were two that I expected but
didn't observe. No mergansers
or scoters either.
