Lake Leatherwood Christmas ducks

A brief cold trip to Lake Leatherwood yesterday (Christmas) showed some new ducks arriving before the cold front. There were maybe 20-25 Ring-necked Ducks and about 15 Green-winged Teals to join the Buffleheads and Mallards that had been there. Also a flock of Gadwalls were mixed with the Mallards. The American Coots that had been present for at least six weeks were not re-found. Pied-bill Grebes continued in fair numbers. The woodland birds were few and far between; I guess they were hunkered down under cover out of the wind, chill factor was about 10 degrees.
