The Estabrook Park Report

Grey skies, so the pictures aren’t as pretty as yesterday’s.

  • The pair of Canada Geese are still watching over the pond and incubating their eggs. The male honked at multiple fly-bys, and finally scrambled to chase off another couple that wouldn’t take no for an answer.
  • The Mallard Fraternity is up to 5 members this morning and starting to do some bottom feeding.
  • The male Red-breasted Merganser was back and using a new fishing technique this morning. Instead of just diving, he merely puts his face in the water and trolls forward until he sees something worth diving for, I guess.
  • The Pied-billed Grebe was back and fishing as he’s done before, spending more time underwater than on the surface.
  • The white-haired geezers were also out in force.

I’ve posted a couple of new pictures at
