Caspar Pond- March 10th Morning

Joanne Abramson

Six Common Mergansers males kept the rest of the birds moving around the pond as they determined another species, or their own species, were too close to their female! 

A lot of activity on a gorgeous, sunny day!

Some mornings they all have their heads tucked under a wing and are sleeping.

Saw four Hooded and six Common Mergansers there this morning, as well as two Ruddy Ducks, three female Buffleheads, three Northern Shovelers and a single Double-crested Cormorant. Two Bald Eagles, one adult, one third-year, were soaring on a thermal way above Caspar. A Great Blue Heron was also at the pond. A lot of Yellow-rumped Warblers were also present, as were White-crowned and a few Golden-crowned Sparrows, a Song Sparrow and a couple of Spotted Towhees.

Happy Birding!
