Late Fall Lake Scenes; Recent or Current Visitors

Lake Kittamaqundi yesterday, looking toward the north end from the Sheraton. Fifteen buffleheads stopped on the lake last Sunday.

They left one behind on Monday...

Wood ducks usually seek the seclusion of secret ponds around the county, but the male in the photo above has been mixing with the mallards at the north end of Lake Kittamaqundi this week.

Meanwhile at Centennial Lake (photographed above), among hundreds of Canada geese bird-watchers have been spotting a pair of rare greater white-fronted geese (photos below).
