Woke up with the ambition to go afield and went back to sleep with the sound of rain. So i got a late start and decided to drive the River S loop at Ridgefield.
Saw my first Buffleheads of the season — love those birds and it is always a season highlight for me. A lone Eurasian Widgeon was in the wetland beyond marker 11. Too far out for any pictures however. Swans are back. A few Yellowlegs, a bunch of Siskins and Goldfinch feeding on Teasel seed, and ducks filling in the waterways.
