Apr 13, 2014: South Lake

This is a northwest view across the south lake, taken from near the spillway.  A large raft of waterfowl was present and included Gadwalls (200+), American Wigeons (9+), Blue-winged Teal (2), Northern Shovelers (110+), Green-winged Teal (13+), Ring-necked Ducks (2), Lesser Scaups (24+), and Buffleheads (15+).  Non-waterfowl included Common Loons (4), Pied-billed Grebes (5), Horned Grebes (3), and American Coots (124+).  The first Purple Martin was found flying over the south wetland complex.  A Great Egret stood in the waters of Pond H.  Two Ospreys hunted over both of the main lakes. 4/10/14 (Wolf. Oesterreich)
