Interesting how certain ducks return to their same haunts. After being iced out for several weeks, a group of seven Mallards (including the hermaphrodite) has returned to the Port Lambton dock area. This group was around all fall and I know the hermaphrodite has been there for over two years. One wonders where they went for several weeks--several km upriver at least!
Lots of ducks were to be found. Even some early spring migrants including a few American Wigeon and Gadwall around Fawn Island. Three White-winged Scoters were also at Fawn Island. A couple individuals of this species were on the river seen at various spots all winter, but these were new ones.
