Andrew Haydon Park

Nov 15, 10:30 a.m.

Inspired by the fabulous photos of the Blackpoll Warbler on Saturday by Wilson Hum, Barbara and I headed out to try and locate it.

Well, we found Wilson, but not the warbler.

The usual Green-winged Teal and Lesser Scaup were on the pond, and we saw rafts of Common Goldeneye and six Red-breasted Mergansers on the river.

Observing carefully, we were able to distinguish the female Ring-necked Duck from the Lesser Scaup on the pond. They are very similar. Returning to the car, we saw two Muskrats playing around.
