Irondequoit Bay Outlet Bridge • February 15

Over the noon hour, Mary Flood and I checked out the waterfowl by the Irondequoit Bay Outlet Bridge. It was a pretty standard collection today, with nice looks at a female Common Goldeneye. There were also some Graylag (Barnyard) Geese. We saw some Mallard and Mute Swan courtship behavior -- signs of the coming spring! :-)
