While most of it was the regular crowd, as I almost walked out of the corner of the park that leads me home, I spotted a gathering of waterfowl, and I made a B-line for it.
For the next week I will be devoid of computer and cell phone as I will be on an island with birds-- so this is going to be kept short and sweet for now as I have stuff to do before I wake up tomorrow. Enjoy!

|Another wood duck family by the boat house, this mama has three!|

|Someone has their summer vacation planned, destination, Brooklyn, NY.|
|American Coots are common in winter. But in summer, they don't usually stick around.|
|While observing the coot I heard this raspy squeak of a call, and another Mama Wood duck, the same I saw last week came by-- still with 7 chicks in tow!|
|They are getting so big!|
|The coot is not looking like he wants to share.|
|Another summer vacationer, a ring-neck duck. Again, they hang here in the winter, but summer? Not so much.|
|Perhaps this duck and the coot are looking to have a wild and crazy summer in Brooklyn.|
|Just when I thought this little corner of the lake couldn't get better... a parade of behbeh wood ducks marched toward me!|
|This was when I figured can't get better than this moment, so leave on a good note because I have stuff to do tonight!|
