Northern Shovelers

This morning at the Bracebridge Ponds there was a male Northern Shoveler and a male Blue-winged Teal in cell 1. There were three more Northern Shoveler males in cell 2. A Common Goldeneye was in cell 4. The overall number of ducks is way down, but the number of swallows is going up...about 30 Tree Swallows, 8 Barn, 6 Bank, and 2 Northern Rough-winged. There were also four Chimney Swifts hawking insects by cell 4 as they generally headed north.

The water level in all cells remains high. The only shorebirds seen were Killdeer and Spotted Sandpipers, plus a Solitary Sandpiper on the muddy/wet pipeline northwest of cell 4. A lone American Pipit was calling as it flew overhead.
