Well, first I went to West Bend again. This is where I saw the Common Loons I posted the other day, but I didn't get very many good pictures of them (they were too far away). So I waited for a while and they came up very close.
Then Horicon Marsh, where we saw a large number of Canvasbacks and Lesser Scaups. As I took a photo of what I thought was a Lesser Scaup and a Canvasback, I realized that it was actually a Ring-necked Duck, which is a life-lister for me.
|Second from the left is a Ring-necked Duck drake.|
To the left of him is probably a hen.
|American Coots, ubiquitous birds.|
|Likely a Canada Goose. I can't really tell the difference|
between a Canada and Cackling Goose.
|Canvasback hen and drake.|
|I have never seen so many Canvasbacks. They were everywhere!|
|Also there were lots of Ruddy Ducks.|
|See, these ones are definitely Canada Geese.|
|They flew away as I was photographing.|
|Northern Harrier. Same place as the last one, but a different bird.|
|Again with the Northern Harrier.|
|Osprey in a nest.|
|Osprey with prey.|
