Eurasian Wigeon

I visited TRNWR for the first time this year. The water levels have risen, but the birds were scarce. Very few passeriformes, water fowl numbers were down, but the Western Screech-Owl was at its perch.
The refuge has cleaned up most of the mess created by the fallen tree on the lookout platform at the end of the trail. As water levels creep up, the water fowl viewing is closer. Today I saw three male Eurasian Wigeons with a single female from the platform.
