Male Mallard with an itch to scratch

Great Black-backed Gull

Spotted this guy on January 15th. The Osprey left right after Thanksgiving when we had our first frost. The mergansers are still around, though a hunter shot one!!! The heron are around too. The geese are still here, though two hunters each got one. The other night I saw one of the mates all alone calling over head looking for in vain for its mate. (Hunters please shoot both if you can! But not here for it is private property.) And yes I called the police on both hunters. This is a stupid place to hunt with so many people around, and the Perkiomen trail right there with people on it during all sorts of weather.
