Ducks on Bells Lane

I made a brief visit to Bells Lane late this lovely afternoon, just in case the Long-tailed ducks were still lingering there (no), but I did observe two species that you don't see every day: American Wigeons and Blue-winged Teals. I'm glad I went. I also saw a couple small whitish ducks on the distant pond in the upland section, and they might have been Buffleheads.

As for the yard birds, Goldfinches are turning yellow, and some have almost completed their spring plumage molt. Pine siskins are still showing up regularly, and I saw a male Cowbird as well.

blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
