This time of year is an exciting one for duck watching. Migratory ducks have been known, over the years, to splash down in our little watershed for a stop-over on their flights back north. This sighting is a first… in the thirty years we have been watching.
A pair of Cinnamon Teal! My neighbor, who is an amateur expert on ducks, was very excited. He said this species are unusual here, and most likely are migrating back to nest in the Yukon Territory and interior Alaska.
