OMG, Ducks, Ducks, Ducks at Arcadia!!!

Hello everyone,  Well my friend David and I took a nice stroll to the duck blind at Arcadia Wildlife Sanctuary this morning and found that Hulberts Pond was full of migrating ducks.  We had dabbling ducks (feeds on the surface) like mallards and green-winged teals and diving ducks like hooded mergansers.  What a morning!  Click on any pic to make it larger:

About John Body

I live in Western Massachusetts, in the incredibly beautiful Connecticut River Valley. I've been hiking, kayaking, and tracking wildlife throughout the Valley with lots of photos and videos that people may like to see. Whenever I travel I also take my cameras just in case I see great scenery or wildlife. My passion is wildlife conservation so I try to attend wildlife workshops and land preservation events (Habitat, Habitat, Habitat!). When I get a chance, I videotape the experts, they're just so knowledgeable and inspiring. I hope you enjoy my posts.
