Today about 1:15 p.m. John & I had good looks at the 2 horned grebes, one spending a long time grooming. Also saw a pr. of common mergs with the male in his well-dressed "suit," suitable for a suitor ... nothing COMMON about him! Didn't have time to scan much so probably over looked the canvasbacks this time. Other nos. were down from Fri. but did have gadwall, wigeons, buffles, red-heads, a ring neck & 2 coots.
We checked on the bald eagle nest west of Great Gully about 4:30 p.m. but saw no sign of a bird in the nest or in nearby trees. I was too cold to drag out the scope!

Red-breasted merganser was still there today, along with a stunning pair of canvasbacks, some widgeons, red-heads, buffleheads, a scaup, and some geese. I didn't look long, but did not find the grebes. Everybody seemed to be feeding happily.
