While I was at the park looking for the barred owl, I stopped by the “duck pond” to check on the ducks. I call it the duck pond because it seems all the ducks on the river congregate there. While there, I saw a couple of wood ducks, which I had never seen before. In fact, I wouldn’t have seen them this time if someone hadn’t pointed them out to me. The were swimming in a shaded area among a bunch of other ducks and were difficult to see.
