    ty so much this helps me along with your wonderful books for much easier identification of the many waterfowl moving through our area right now. We live on a lake in northern Indiana. Migration in full swing. Happy spring.

  2. Ha! Yesterday I posted some pics from Sandy Hook, NJ with some Brants foraging…. Facebook : Gary Celeste
    I never saw a Brant before, had to look it up when I came home, but they made a great cackling noise….

    Hi David,
    I had to look up Blue winged teal just don’t see them enough.
    I enjoy all your quizzes, great fun, even when I don’t get them all right.
