The variety of ducks at the State Park is always good in the winter and we got great, close looks at them on the numerous ponds. Less common in winter is seeing so many lingering Great Blue Herons and Great Egrets but there is plenty of open water so they’re having no trouble finding food so far. It’s always a pleasure to see our native Tundra Swans as wintering visitors and this morning we were especially lucky to hear them calling several times, making the whistling call for which they were previously named.
