This morning at 6:15 a couple of Wood Ducks short-hopped over the ridge behind the West Danby Fire Station to visit my pond. They were about to hit the water, but aborted at the last moment when they spotted me. Turkeys are gobbling. We could see a foot of snow in the next 48 hours. -Geo

West Danby is socked-in this morning, with a ceiling just a few hundred feet above the valley floor - a condition that sometimes produces a migrant fallout. Four Wood Ducks circled my pond just now. -Geo -- Cayugabirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsWELCOME

I took a short walk in the mown fields in the central part of the LP Biodiversity Preserve (West Danby). Ponds are just beginning to open down there, and Wood Ducks were concentrated in the small ice-free areas. I stopped counting at 16... Great Blue Herons were standing in a high nest out in

Here is something I would bet has been seen by nobody on this list-serve. A neighbor of mine watched as a brood of baby WOOD DUCKS tumbled from a big maple tree on my street. The mother headed for a tiny pond nearby and my neighbor assisted by herding the ducklings in that direction. My

Okay. Time for me to bow my head in shame. A dear friend pointed out to me that there was no mention of the gender of Bill's neighbor. Sometimes we are slapped in our own faces by biases that run so deep. As the mother of two women and the grandma of a little girl I find it so strange that I
