There are currently three pairs of Wood Ducks at the pond on the north side of County Road 16 beside the Gannon’s Narrows Conservation Area. At least one pair is known to be nesting in the nearby trees. The others may use the boxes that have been set up for this purpose. A female Red-bellied Woodpecker came to a nearby feeder all winter long. A pair of Trumpeter Swans were present in the open water of the Narrow’s from early December on and I still see them occasionally.
