Duck, duck, grey duck?
Taking a break from the isolation of my apartment Sunday, I took a drive out to Wisconsin Point. I figured I'd see seagulls, crows, geese, maybe an eagle, if I was lucky.
As I drove down the almost empty road, I noticed a few groups of birds swimming together. I figured they were mallards, the usual visitors out at the point.
As I got closer to them, I thought maybe they were loons?
They turned out to be common goldeneyes. Then a few hundred yards down the road, a group of hooded mergansers swam away from shore.
