Return of the Redheads

It’s early in the season, and the number of species of winter water fowl is still pretty low here on this section of the Colorado River at Buckskin Mountain State Park. However more winter birds are beginning to trickle in from the north daily and this morning was a pointed example. We have been seeing a lone male Redhead for the last four or five days, but this morning during my Bird Walk we sighted a group of 28, mostly males, but some females. Redheads tend to stick together in a tight group and are quieter than most ducks. In the coming days, weeks and months we will see an increasing number of different species.
