When it was snowing last week my neighbor and I took our cameras for a walk and had a lovely couple of hours birding our own neighborhood. We’ve been keeping 6 feet apart and she’s in my very small group of contacts that I am seeing as we get through this pandemic.
These are Lesser Scaups that migrate and winter here. There are currently several pairs staying in a couple of the ponds at the golf course that meander through our community.
They are in the dipping/diving duck family and are the most abundant diving duck in North America.
I have no idea how much longer they’re going to be here, but I’ve enjoyed seeing them here.
This is a group of both males and females that got skittish as we got closer to their end of the pond.
Going for walks when I can have been great for my mind and spirit. I hope you’re all finding ways to keep your spirits up during this self-distancing and quarantine time.
We’ll get through this! 🥰
