Nature Walks – Barrow’s Goldeneye

I love where we live. I love our lakes and all the variety of wildlife we have around us. You just never know what or who you are going to see on any given day. Today, out on he 4th lake, all my feathered friends were having some kind of a party. There wert so many different types of ducks and and loads of geese out too, all just having a blast swimming around in he cold, icy water. We had Hooded Mergansers, Ring-Necked Ducks, Mallards, Buffleheads, Barrow’s Goldeneyes and of course our Canadian Geese. I think I even saw a Cakling or two as well. Sometimes it is hard to tell. Fortunately I have a great zoom on my camera, which helps a lot. Sometimes I still can’t tell until I download everything on my computer and really zoom in. And even then, sometimes i have no idea what I just saw. 🙂

I am going to focus on my Barrow’s Goldeneyes today though, since these are my first of the season.

I hope your day is just ducky. Happy Thanksgiving Everyone. ‘Til next time.
