Tufted Duck Delight~

Howdee all,

On our way back south from our trip to Connecticut and MA we decided to again search for the Tufted Duck. I read it was seen two days prior,and was hoping this time we would get lucky.

If you saw my last post you will remember I did a bit of swearing about the freezing weather and the duck that did not show.

If we didn’t see the duck this time around we would at least have a nice dinner at The Narrows Restaurant.

We left Connecticut later than planned and when we arrived at the Narrows we had just a bit over and hour to search for

The female Tufted Duck

It certainly would have come in handy as we scanned the rafts of duck.

It was overcast and a bit blustery, but not nearly as freezing as our last stop a week earlier.
