Winter Water Holes
Posted by Robert Mortensen
On this recent outing with the kids there were hundreds of Canada Geese, American Wigeon, Mallards, and a dozen or so Wood Ducks. There were a few Bufflehead, Common & Hooded Mergansers in the mix too.
Swarovski ATX spotting scope and I engaged my 11-year-old son by having him enter the sightings into the BirdLog app. He really liked doing that...so birding parents take note. Super-nature-dad doesn't always have to look at birds the whole time, especially when there is a ginormous leaf pile nearby to play on.
