Blue winged Teal continue

Blue winged Teal (two right side birds) with Mallard, Lake Wallace, Belchertown, MA, Aug 31, 2012
Another cool morning with temperatures in the 50’s and sunny skies found me stopping briefly at Lake Wallace before work.  A nice selection of waterfowl around for the last day of August with a total of at least 10 Blue-winged Teal!  There was a group of six together as well as two more groups of two.  They were a bit difficult to see at times and had disappeared into the reeds by the time I left.  Other waterfowl included a single Hooded Merganser, a Black Duck, a Pied-billed Grebe (in juvenile plumage), Wood Ducks (77) and Mallards (146).  There were still several Green Herons around as well as a couple Eastern Kingbirds plus others.
