A large flock of Northern Pintails have arrived in a muddy field near Sikes Lake.  Cross the Sikes Lake bridge from the Carnation Farm Road and the field will be on your left.  Karen and I saw and photographed them yesterday.  A similar flock was there for a good part of the winter last year.

As mentioned in a post yesterday we saw the Sandhill Cranes at Fairfield County Park in Monroe.  Here is a photo.  The wind and rain were impressive with  rain blowing into the car when I lowered the window to take photos. 


This morning three Trumpeter Swans landed on Lake Joy.  This is not unprecedented, but is not very common.
