Wandering Waterfowl

As ice continues to melt on Lake Chillisquaque at Montour Preserve, waterfowl species are quickly changing as birds push north. Yesterday there were many ring-necked ducks, a few tundra swans and 3 bald eagles. Today saw northern pintails, green-winged teal, hooded merganser, ring-necked ducks, American wigeon, wood ducks and tundra swans. Snow geese numbers have decreased drastically and it is possible that the peak of their migration has passed. Two immature bald eagles were feeding on a deer carcass while 10 crows watched.
