For those of you who read my posts, infrequent as they are, you have heard me talk about the Kaleida Marshes. These are about a 30 minute drive from my house, but with all the birds that come through there in spring, it is well worth the drive.
Come with me as we check out a few of the many water birds at the marsh.
Here a pair of Lesser Scaup glide along peacefully.
Of course many Canada Geese make this marsh their spring and summer destination.
The Blue-winged Teal is another common sight. Even though some of these birds are not brightly coloured, in my opinion they are still beautiful.
The Northern Shoveler could be mistaken for the male Mallard, but one look at that big flat bill and the name makes prefect sense. I always feel like that bill is a good shovel.
There are two different ducks that I tend to get mixed up. They are the Canvasback as the ones below and the Redhead. The coloration is similar, but the head shape is different.
I hope you enjoyed this short visit to the spring marsh.
