Feed the Birds
These American Wigeons were more polite than the mallards and black ducks. They waited for the dust to settle before they moved in to pick at the leftovers.
I have noticed that large stocks of bird seed and suet are flying off the shelves in the store so I'm sure than many hungry birds around the area are eating well on the cold, cold days of winter. When walking in the woods it is fairly common to come upon an isolated bird feeder or suet cage hanging on a tree so placed for the small birds. Benches around Long Pond are a favorite depository for seeds and the little woodland birds move in to clean it up.
