Spring is upon us here in Wisconsin. We are blessed that we live in a area where there are many lakes, marshes and rivers. So when spring hits us we are always driving around looking at these spots for cool ducks or other animals. Some ducks have better color of feathers in the spring than in the fall so it’s nice to see those birds in spring. The birds are getting ready to lay eggs and start a family so you see the ducks and geese paired up as well as big groups.
These Hooded Merganser pictures were taken 2 miles from my house on a river that flows close to our house property and close to where I own some hunting land.
The field in the back ground is my field. I own the field and the woods and only a small part of the marsh. The water that the geese are sitting on is owned by someone else and it is in a government program so they can’t make any changes to the water at all or put up permanent blinds or stands.
These Canvasbacks and Ringbills were on a lake called the Kingston Mill Pond. We do hunt on this lake on occasion.
And then there was lonely Mr. Muskrat busy eating.
That is the end of our wildlife cruise. Hopefully later I will be able to get some closer pictures of the ducks.
