A very brief stop at the lake

After a very tiring day,the best i could manage was birding briefly the Lake. Among those twirling Shovelers and dissipated Ruddies,I caught notice of a few different ducks

In around 250 feet from the western shore, 3 GADWALL were including a hen AMERICAN WIGEON in their party. Nice to see the Gadwalls but two different quality species for Prospect Lake is nice.
And after my spot, an adult COOPERS HAWK comes flying in and landed in the tree above me.It stayed there abit while I was able to enjoy watching it.

Two PIED BILLED GREBES continue to plow the waters .
