Early Morning Ducks – safe in the marsh

The North Marsh at Lk. St. Clair Metropark held some Northern Shovelers, Gadwall and a Green-winged Teal at dawn…. Bumped into Allen Chartier who was doing a bird survey… When he pulled up in his car and got out the flock took off, circled and came back to the same spot, so I was able to snap some photos in flight….  Also had a Northern Harrier at the DNR pointe as well as a flock of Snow Buntings… I was unable to view the flock of buntings for Lapland Longspurs as it was still quite dark….  off to work I went…..
