Spring Waterfowl Fun

Over the last two days I have had the opportunity to see a number of very neat birds. I went to the 180th Street Marsh for the first time yesterday and saw, Gadwall, American Wigeon, Redhead, Northern Shovelers, and Bufflehead. Here are a couple shots of the Northern Shovelers yesterday:

Today I stopped at Lochness Park, and although there was not much there I did see a pair of Bufflehead and got this shot.
