A Mixed Flock of Ducks

While at Hazen Park today, at Oromocto, I watched a small flock of ducks fly in and land adjacent to the island in the mouth of the Oromocto River there. It was a small group comprised mainly of Mallards, but also among them I could see one male Green-winged Teal (above), a few Black Ducks and one male Wood Duck. Nearby, but not part of this group, was a male Hooded Merganser and also seven Canada Geese. An interesting sighting for one looking daily for returning ducks: all within a few minutes, all viewed from the same location.
