Birdwatching for Mommy and Play for the Kiddos

We started the day out with Ruby and Moxy trying to catch the poor little red polls. Ruby almost caught one, and Moxy is enthustically clapping.
above: Northern Shoveler
Moxy looking for what I thought was a Loon. I got all excited and he grabbed the binoculars and looked through them in the opposite direction.
Greater Scaup or Ring-necked duck. I have a hard time actually identifying them.
We are at Hanger Lake where planes land, and the birds love to come and eat. It was about 58 degrees today....very warm :). We brought lawn chairs and sat and waited. Of course the ducks knew better than to come to close to us and those rocks Moxy was chucking into the water.
