Running here and there…..

I started the morning early looking for the Snowy Owl on North River Rd in Harrison Twp…. No luck… I then moved onto Brandenburg Park…. a Large group of about 300 gulls were sitting in there usual spot, but the sun was behind them and blinding me… I couldn’t see a thing… There was a large raft of Ruddy Ducks, approx 200 near the pier… There were a few Common Mergansers about…. Not much there, so I headed to Wetzel and bumped into Kevin Rysiewski…. We took a walk and looked for the Long-eared Owl that had been reported… No luck there so we found the flock of Common Redpolls and looked for a Hoary…. No Hoary today, but we had fun chasing this flock around…. they are cool birds…. Also found some Brown Creepers and a pair of Hairy Woodpeckers…..

Love the way a Common Merganser takes flight, walking on the water...
