I leashed my dogs and went down to the West Danby Fire Station this afternoon 
for a look in the beaver pond. Only two Wood Ducks, but at least 20 Hooded 
Mergansers were in there. A Red-tailed Hawk was perched alongside one of the 
big stick nests belonging to Great Blue Herons.

Then we went down to Coleman Lake. There was nothing much at the north end, and 
I hadn't bothered to carry my scope so far, but several Kingfishers were 
working the lake, and I was happy to see a good amount of otter scat on the 
dike. Hooray for river otters!

I imagine the beaver-flooded woods along the northern edge of the preserve will 
be great for Wood Ducks.
