Richmond: Snow Goose & Eurasian Wigeons continue, oyster-harvesting Oystercatchers

Lee Friedman
 

Tuesday at the Richmond Marina the Snow Goose with the 8 Greater White-fronted Geese continue in the lawn areas.


At Miller-Knox, two Eurasian Wigeons continue in the pond. Also, the Black Oystercatchers seem to be harvesting oysters from the bay. Perhaps this is due to the restoration efforts that began several years ago around the Richmond Harbor area.


Here are a few photos:
