Saturday's bitter trip with the North Alabama Birdwatching Society produced lots of pictures. I won't do much writing here because of the amount of photos!American Coots all piled together. I was told they usually do this when an Eagle is near. We did not spy the Eagle at this time.We saw lots of Lesser Scaup, Canvasback, and Redheads in this bunch.There were some really cute Ruddy Ducks there too. Sorry the pictures are not good. They were just so far out there.A little cove with some gulls and frozen water.Other birds noted were, Common Goldeneye, Mallards, Common Loon, Red-breasted Mergansers, Canada Goose, Brown-headed Nuthatch (see previous post), 2 Bald Eagles (seen from the resturant window during lunch!), Great Blue Heron, Black-crowned Night Heron, Kingfisher, and Kestrel. Among others.
