I visited Kingstowne Lake (South Van Dorn Street and Kingstowne Center Parkway) this afternoon and found a REDHEAD (adult male) swimming among the other waterfowl. Also noted were many RING-NECKED DUCKS (m&f), an AMERICAN COOT, and three of four RUDDY DUCKS (m&f). I've posted pictures of the Redhead and a Ruddy Duck on my website. The first eighteen pictures (first page) were all taken today--not all birds http://www.pbase.com/bb_etc/kingstowne BTW, I will have a number of pictures from my trip this fall to the raptor banding station at Cape May, NJ posted shortly (by the end of this month) in case anyone is interested. They will be in the Birds gallery in a sub-gallery named Cape May. Cliff Otto Alexandria --- avast! Antivirus: Outbound message clean.
