Hamden, north end of Lake Whitney, viewed with binoculars and scopes
from Greenway Street and from the Waite Street causeway.
RUDDY SHELDUCK dabbling, resting, and preening near other
waterfowl (Canada Geese, Mallards, Gadwall and Wood Ducks). The
bird was sometimes in open water, sometimes entirely or partially
hidden by vegetation. Nancy Rosenbaum and I couldn't see any bands
on the legs when it was dabbling.
