Jan 9 Tue 12:30pm - 12 Ruddy Ducks on Swan Lake today (non-breeding plumage). A lot of baths and preening going on. Northern Pintail in the flooded field near Tuesday Pond.
Dec 10 nature walk count included Canvasbacks and a Harlan's RTHA in the tree by Tuesday Pond but I didn't see these today.

That sounds like a nice find. I don't think we have them on Vancouver Island, but I'm not sure.

these are on Vancouver Island. we see some every year. the Swan Lake I'm referring to is in Victoria, not Vernon.

Jan 21_2018 Sunday-was out at Swan Lake and checked the LIST at Nature House. there were 17 Ruddy ducks counted Jan 14th but they seem to be gone now.
got a pic of a beautiful Red-tailed Hawk in the cottonwood by Tuesday Pond at 2pm. it had a band on its leg. Bald Eagle flew over the lake, 2 heron, 2 Cormorant, a bunch of Lesser Scaup and some Ring-necked, RWBL, a Pied-billed Grebe.
