Lotsa Ducks and Geese

Went to Pawnee and Branched Oak Lakes. Both lakes are still partially frozen. Plenty of activity at both lakes, however.

Lots of Canada Geese at both lakes. Some Greater White-fronted and probably Cackling Geeese also. A good number of Snow Geese at Branched Oak. Lots and lots of ducks, including Mallards (of course), Northern Pintails, Greater Scaups, Redheads, Red-breasted Mergansers, Common Goldeneyes, Ring-necked Ducks, and a few Wood Ducks.

The photos are from Pawnee
