Daily Postcard: New Ducks In Town

Daily Postcard: These two ducks have been spotted lately at Ashley Pond. They are female Lesser Scaup, an unusual visitor to the pond. They will likely leave during spring migration. Source: Local bird expert Bob Walker. The pair appear curious about a Lhasa Apso dog Tuesday; when she walked one way on the path, they would follow her in the water and when she backtracked, they did, too. They didn’t seem as interested in people. Photo by Ken Hanson
