Field Notes (2/06/12)

Just before stopping to scope the waterfowl on the south lake, a drake Common Merganser took flight.  Then I heard the call of another goose species and soon found 7 Greater White-fronted Geese.  Both are new species for the year.  While attempting to count the Mallards, two Bald Eagles (a juvenile & an adult) flew low over the water scattering the geese and ducks.  Then they lazily sailed off towards the Skunk River.  The juvenile returned later, settling in a tree below the bluff.  I was able to obtain a photograph.  The drake American Black Duck was still present, although sleeping on the ice.
