Fond du Lac Birds

Went birding today at Lakeside Park, got two new life list birds as well as one for the Fond du Lac year list:

Ruddy Duck. I've seen these before, but not this year.

Another Ruddy Duck.
Ring-billed Gull in flight.
Hooded Merganser.

More Hooded Mergansers; a life lister for me.
This little guy was hiding among female Mallards so I didn't
notice him at first. He's a Gadwall.
Also we saw some opossums.
