More Bird Blobs
What I found strange was, that while they had acknowledged me upon my arrival, they were focused on something else. Generally, one or the other (if both are present) occasionally glances over in my direction. Yet as I set up the tripod, and camera, neither seemed at all interested.
Grant you they're 265 yds across the pond however, they remained focused on something. Another oddity was that they were not looking down at the pond but rather gazing almost laterally to the East around the trees. Using the binoculars, I began skimming the trees, trying to follow the Eagles' line of sight.
WHAT IN THE WORLD? What is THAT??? My camera lens was not powerful enough to deal with the distance but there IT was! When I got home and zoomed in, distorted pixels and all, I believe it's some sort of DUCK. The bill is "duck-shaped" and it was relatively large. Typically both geese and mallards are on this pond. Anybody have any thoughts?????
