Stoney Creek (Wintergreen) 3/29/10

We had a couple of inches of rain last night, and this morning it was foggy and cloudy, but I ventured out to see if any ducks decided to spend the night here.

In addition to seeing some of the usual resident and early spring birds, RS and RT Hawks, RW Blackbirds, Bluebirds, White-throated/Song/Field Sparrows, Vultures, Crows, DE Juncos, Cardinals, Carolina Chickadees, Red-bellied WP, and Carolina Wrens, there were some Cowbirds and a flock of Chipping Sparrows at my feeder.

On Lake Monocan, there were 3 female Hooded Mergansers and 1 male Mallard:

On the small pond along Hidden Creek Drive, there was a female Ring-necked Duck:
