First duck sighting for 2017

My heart gave a joyful heart leap of 'spring optimism' this morning when I saw this Black Duck in the river as seen from the highway bridge at Hoyt. I was surprised that my first duck sighting of this late winter period was a Black Duck as I usually see Common Goldeneye here or better still Hooded Mergansers. However this assurance this morning that ducks are on their way, tells me that I will soon also be seeing Goldeneye or Megansers too at this location.' "Oh Happy Day"!
