In the past few days I have again seen “Hank” the resident Great Blue Heron here at the little farm pond. I also have spotted a handsome drake or male Ring Necked Duck, a few Canada Geese, and a pair of really nice Mallard Ducks. The Ring Necked Duck was paddling on the little private community lake that is across the street from my home here. The Ring Necked Duck is a migratory visitor and likely a scout duck for a larger flock on its way here from up North. The Canada Goose is a member of the resident flock at the Cumberland Mountain State Park here in Crossville, TN. The Canada Geese there at the state park seem to be rather fond of people and are outstanding beggars. I took these pictures on Nov. 13, 20012, and again on November 14, 2012.
