Finally got around to looking through Saturday’s photos at a few lakes around Dutchess County. As mentioned in my last post, the ruddy duck was the highlight of the day.
Other notables included a ring-necked duck at Overlook Park, mute swans at Morgan Lake, and a pair of female common mergansers at Wappinger Lake.
I will definitely try to check out the Hudson River and nearby lakes and ponds more often this season to see what other waterfowl I might happen to stumble upon. Until then, enjoy the photos!
