Ruddy Duck & Night herons

Last night, two RUDDY DUCK drakes were close to the shore of Prospect Lake. Rare seasonally  for the park, perhaps they are spending summer vacation here.A single bird has been hanging out here for a week I believed:finally some company for the bird.

While enjoying the clouds beyond the lake, some spectacular shapes and sunset illuminated,  I observed two directionless BLACK CROWNED NIGHT HERONS flew several circles over the lake. Where were they going? Its anybody' s guess.

Other news has been the typical bird species expected in Prospect.Yesterday a pair of GADWALL at the Boathouse is notable. Check the link above Prospect checklist for the latest species.
