These are photos over the past several days.  The duck population is increasing, and The Northern Reaches is hosting Great Blue Herons who are getting their breeding plumage.  A Black Crowned Night Heron has been seen in the Souther Cove and chances are looking good that we might have a youngster upcoming from there.  We did last year, so let's hope for the best.
