more Wood Ducks, Los Osos
This morning, while standing at the end of the boardwalk at Sweet Springs I saw a group of ducks fly by that I didn't immediately recognize. I took some photos and they turned out to be Wood Ducks--11 of them. I thought they flew towards the ponds, but couldn't find any there. Guess they kept flying. While I was near the ponds the bald eagle flew right past where I had just been at the end of the boardwalk, harassed some coots briefly, then flew to a tree just back from the corner of the cove, landing at a spot not visible from the overlook.
