Lots and Lots of Ducks!

The pond below the photo blind has been full of ducks this week. At times there have been up to 200 Ring-necked Ducks, with small groups of Mallards, Canvasbacks, Redheads, Gadwall, and American Wigeon. Last week there were up to 30 Lesser Scaup. The Ring-necked Ducks are fun to watch feed but very skittish, so approach the blind quietly and stay back away from the window or they will all head to the Colorado River.
