MORE WATER=MORE DUCKS

An afternoon visit to Fairview Wetlands revealed deeper water and more ducks. There are increasing numbers of both individuals and species. A few days back the first divers were a quartet of Bufflehead, the next day there was a fifth. Today there were nine and I also saw the first Ring-necked Duck there this fall and a pair of Hooded Mergansers. Much of the marsh now has water with open surface, having submerged shorter plants, and the water level is about a foot below the top the encircling berms and nearly ready to top the water-control dams.

At the lake on south 22nd Street there is a flock of Ring-necks and a flock of Ruddy Ducks.
