Caspar Pond Ducks galore

Jessica Morton

´╗┐At 5:45 Tuesday afternoon in Caspar Pond, there were 1 Coot, 1 Pied-billed Grebe, a pair of Hooded Merganser, 2 male and 1 female Common Merganser, 2 female with 1 male Ruddy Ducks, 1 female Bufflehead, and the puzzling quartet of continuing Northern Shovelers, which now seem to be 2 who are transitioning to male plumage, 1 fully male plumaged, and 1 still appearing female. So far.
