Yesterday was a very gloomy day at the lake.
I found three Common varieties.
Common Loon (non-breeding, winter plumage) don't often see that phase here.
Common Goldeneye (males).
Common Merganser (female)

Thanks for looking,
Mark

Same sort of waterbirds and weather as here.

Love the Buffies shot, and great isolation on the Mergie.

Wow, loon in gloom is a great shot as are the other shots. Must be fun to have these as year round residents.

Mark, you made a lot out of not much light -- great to see the loon especially.

Killer frame on the flying Golden-eyes Mark and a thrill to see the Loon regardless of phase

Merganser is a beauty. Nice set Mark, esp given such overcast.
