Chris Kick of The Daily Record taking my photo while I'm shooting far off duckies.
A pair of Sandhill Cranes were out foraging in corn stubble at dusk. They are known to nest in this area also.
Ring-necked Ducks were MORE than plentiful! There were hundreds to be found and sorted through. We also saw Lesser Scaup mixed in as well as Northern Shoveler, Gadwall, American Wigeon and Blue-winged Teal.
Then at last, WAY out in the distance, two black spots were swimming and diving among the hundreds of Ring-necked Ducks. I put a 2X converter on the 300mm lens, and bad-a-bing, I got me a couple of Scoters! Maybe not the greatest shot, but I'm more interested in SEEING the birds than making a field guide. At least for now...Red-tailed Hawk at night, birder's delight, Red-tailed Hawk in morning, mousey's forewarning!
American Wigeon flying off into the sunset just as I am going to do now...
Another exciting chapter of...DUX DELUX...coming soon.
