Although perhaps banal for most birders, AMERICAN BLACK DUCK has some beauty of its own. We get several in most winters here at Prospect Lake. But I counted a nice number of nine Black Ducks coming out of West Island cove, a tight flock with a Mallard among them.So a nice sight to see before I exited the park on my way home from work
