Kevin, with the severe winter this February, accessing good waterfowl  
concentration areas may be tough. I would always suggest a few spots  
in Rhode Island such as Beavertail SP in Jamestown, Sachuest NWR in  
Middletown, Point Judith, Galilee Harbor in Narragansett, Newton Ave  
along the Narragansett shoreline, Narragansett Town Pier, Cliff Walk  
in Newport, Brenton Point in Newport, Fort Adams in Newport, Fort  
Getty in Jamestown, Fort Wetherill in Jamestown, Quonnie Breachway in  
Charlestown, and when not frozen try Trustom Pond, Ninigret Pond, in  
the Harbor areas of the Providence area and Wickford area. You should  
find just about any species you would want in these areas. Beavertail  
is my absolute favorite...especially if you want good close-up shots  
of Eiders, Harlequins and other Sea Ducks and Sea Birds.

Good Luck,

Keith Mueller
