Annual Duck Walk, February 1, 2022
After two weather-related postponements, the WLT finally held its Duck Walk on a Tuesday afternoon. 16 participants were instantly rewarded with a bald eagle sighting! It was visible from the Mary Early footbridge, resting high on a tree limb for quite a while--we actually left it and moved on to see common mergansers, bufflehead and ring-necked ducks, plus a male hooded merganser, upstream. Resident Great blue heron, mallards, swans, a black duck, and gulls were also observed. We heard afterwards the eagle has not been seen since our walk, so we're really happy we got it in!
