Duck neighborhoods at the Pools

The Pools,the twin ponds fed by Falkill Falls--Upper and Lower each were characterized by unique duck species. In the Lower Pool, 9 WOOD DUCK rested on willow limbs, but some going up upon land. Meanwhile in the neighboring Upper Pool, its a split scenario, 5 each of GADWALL and NORTHERN SHOVELER occupied that water habitat.

Unique,huh ? But for these ponds not garnering much attention for diversity,its exciting to see special circumstances.

So,5 duck species including 2 Ruddy and the usual Mallards, we hope the Ring.necked Ducks dont make the place too crowded.....

And tonight's spectacular skies had me wowed...and forgetting all about those ducks -KB
