Trumpeters and Shovelers

Around noon today at the Bracebridge Ponds there were two untagged "friendly" Trumpeter Swans in cell 2 and five Northern Shovelers (3M,2F) in cell 1. A pair of Canada Geese were upset that the Swans were hanging around their nesting area. There were 104 Ring-necked Ducks (most in cell 4), a male Blue-winged Teal in cell 1, 8 Lesser Scaup (4M,4F), a Pied-billed Grebe (cell 4), two Common Mergansers (M,F), and several Wood Ducks, Mallards, and Buffleheads. About ten Tree Swallows were flying low over cell 2, and three Belted Kingfishers were checking out the area. Fifteen American Tree Sparrows and three Eastern Phoebes were seen as well as many Song Sparrows and Red-winged Blackbirds. Four Killdeer seemed to be fighting over territory by the middle intersection.
