Lots of ducks (and geese) on the move today. I spent a half hour at Myers this morning. Salmon Creek is high, with thick, chocolaty water. Killdeer calling in the background and a small number of gulls still around. But mainly I noticed ducks flying up the lake. One group of 5 BLACK SCOTERS.

This afternoon I got off work early enough to bike to Treman State Marine Park then walk to the lakeshore to scope the raft of ducks before the light faded. Yesterday from the white lighthouse Jay McGowan had estimated 6k Redheads on his eBird report. I wondered if that included an extra zero.

A late-morning / early-afternoon walk revealed that the southwest part of Cayuga Lake pretty well had the birds cleared out of it. The only Aythya I saw there were a couple of male Redhead carcasses held by one of half a dozen gunners in camo who had set up with a couple of grounded boats and
