Great Backyard Bird Count 2

Again, I was a little lazy so I didn't do day 3, either.  I did do day 4, though, by the lake, which resulted in:
  • ~200 Mallards
  • ~20 Canada Geese
  • 3 American Coots
  • 3 Ring-billed Gulls
  • 3 Lesser Scaups
  • 3 Northern Shovelers
  • 2 American White Pelicans
  • 1 Common Merganser
 The Northern Shovelers are an entirely new bird for me; look at the quackers on these things!
