At Little Lake, at least 600 ducks were present with very large numbers (150 plus) of Hooded Merganser and Ring-necked Ducks. Bufflehead numbers seemed to have increased over last week. There were also small “flocks” of Pied-billed Grebes numbering about six individuals per group. I would guess there had to be several dozen grebes in all. I did not see any swallows at Little Lake.
