Between Hwy 77 and the Observation Platform just west of the Parking Lot were 14 species of waterfowl Sun am. I added one more - Hooded Merganser, in the pond between Black Dog Rd and 77. I couldn't find a duck on Black Dog Lake (W.) but lots of gulls are building up around the power plant and I saw at least 5 Bald Eagles.
Tundra Swan - many, easier to see from NWR HQ overlook
GW Teal (3)
Black Duck (1)
RN Duck 4
Ruddy Duck (2)
Also a SS Hawk chasing (or chased by a Pileated Woodpecker) and then chased off by a Crow.
