AND  also


I also checked this area today since I will be covering it next week as

part of the C&O Canal count. I visited in the afternoon and by then more

birds had arrived. A pair of Common Goldeneye were there, as well as 10

Gadwall, several hundred more Canada geese, and some sort of hybrid

goose (possibly Canada x domestic Graylag) and a white domestic goose.

An adult Bald Eagle also soared overhead. Hope all these birds stick

around for the count!

Good birding!
