I’ve had waterfowl on my mind. I’ve been carving bufflehead, loons, coots, and grebes. I shared a show with Bruce Neckar yesterday and he had been drawing the same.
This morning I got my first chance, this fall, to really spend some time in the field. I circle Morse Lake (NW of Noblesville) and really panned the waters wioth scope and binoculars. The list isn’t long, but many of the birds I was seeking were there.
1.Common Loon (One was calling)
2. Swans (Not identified. Left my field of view and never were spotted again)
3. American Coots
4. Buffleheads (One of my favorites)
6. Common Crow
7. Pied -Billed Grebe
8. Horned Grebe
9. Double Crested Cormorant
10. Canada Goose
11. Ring Billed Gull
I had heard reports of mergansers and scaup. I didn’t see them. I’ve a break from school this week and will keep looking! I want to do a little upland searching, too.
