New guy at the Estabrook Pond

Besides the Canada Geese, including one who appears to be nesting on the island, mallards, and wood ducks, this morning I spotted a male Red-breasted Merganser who perhaps is taking a breather on his way north. Their breeding grounds are supposed to start just north of here, at least on the world map.

Also, the Red-bellied woodpecker I spotted yesterday or the day before is waiting out the rain in his new duplex this morning.
