weather for a ... duck

but given the rain came from the south there was no hope of it knocking down migrants; it completely blocked them instead.

Probably should have gone for the Common Teal on the other side of the state but never really considered it seriously.  Instead a figure-8 through the county was not super productive, but involved a lot less driving.  A pair of Blue-winged Teal were the only pics of interest, they made a decent gif...

There've been a few Forster's Terns around, but I haven't had a lot of luck (though admittedly haven't spent a ton of time) on the lakefront.  This Caspian is from a few weeks ago.

It's admittedly a photoshop job to put the bird together with the moon that was setting at the time.
