Large group of ring-necked ducks on Lake Kittamaqundi


I counted up to 19 individuals in this largest group of the species which I've ever seen on the lake. Photos taken yesterday, January 2. Hooded mergansers were out there, too.




 
 


Group of hooded mergansers, male and female, taken a couple of days ago. All females in the photo above it. They move between the lakes while spending the winter here, and I spotted them on Lake Elkhorn last weekend.
