Peace Valley This and That

This morning on my way to work, I stopped by Peace Valley for a quick look at the lake. More Canada Geese and Common Mergansers are arriving all the time--over 5,000 geese and 700 mergansers there today. While scoping out the gulls, a nice second year Bald Eagle swooped down and caught a fish. Other less common birds there today included one female Ruddy Duck and a pair of Hooded Mergansers.

What are the Lesser Black-backed numbers looking like? Still triple digits?

LBBG numbers are usually low during the day. When I swing by there in the mornings, there are rarely more than a dozen. Several hundred must leave early in the morning and come back at dusk.

Yesterday there were actually more Great Black-backeds than usual--close to 30. But didn't pick up any white-winged gulls. They must all be down at the landfill.
