Ring-necked, Lesser Scaup, Redhead and Common Goldeneye at the Fox River in Waukesha Wisconsin on March 8, 2022

A birding stop at the Fox River in Waukesha early am produced nice views of Ring-necked, Lesser Scaup, Redhead and Common Goldeneye ducks. Also present was 1 American Coot and a lot of Mallards. The main river had a thin layer of ice so these ducks were closer to the dam area on the west side of the river. Most of the time all these ducks were sleeping, but on a few occasions they had their heads up. It was a beautiful morning with sunshine and mild temps around 28 degrees, some wind kept things cold. Images were taken on March 8, 2022.

    Very nice. Really like the Mallard with wings spread out.
    I went to the Goose Pond area today. Snow Goose (3), Dark phased Snow Goose, Trumpeter Swans, White-fronted Geese and about 400 Sandhills dancing. Nice that we both had a great day.

    Nice collection of waterfowl photos, Jim. The sunshine and your superb photography really bring out the beauty in these birds. A lot of the state is still iced over, but the ducks are very good at finding any open water.
