I took a quick spin through Dead Creek late yesterday afternoon. Among the
notables I saw were 6 Northern Pintails feeding among a group of 15 Mallards and
6 Black Ducks close to the viewing area and 4 Gadwall swimming in a large
flock of Mallards and Black Ducks at Brilyea. There are still lots of Snow Geese
hanging around in the fields on both sides of Route 17. I guess that they will
be there until the snows fly.
