  1. Great news. Bird life is getting more diverse by the day — spotted this weekend, (what seemed to be a small, juvenile) White egret who was picking off mosquito fish on north end. And a sharp blue bill stood out on two small ducks, got telephoto shots.

    Went online for IDs, believe they are male Ruddy ducks. The blue on bill is incredible, looks painted.
