The picture above is of a male and female Ring Necked Duck. Central MA waters are coming alive!
A pair of Hooded Mergansers swam provided only one picture.
This pair of Wood Ducks kept my attention for the best of an hour, Several times it appeared they were going to give me an opportunity for an AWESOME pic. Shortly after this picture both duck hopped up into the tree behind them and enjoyed the sun.
Today I did see my first Common Loon on Quabbin. There enchanting call will be heard soon.
