Topic: Lily Lake Ducks

Duck numbers and species have increased nicely on Lily Lake in Cape May Point during the past few days.  Good numbers of Hooded Mergansers were the highlight yesterday along with a couple Pied-billed Grebes.  The male mergs were showing their crests quite nicely.  With the warm weather thay probably think nesting season is almost upon them.  Also present in decent numbers were Gadwall, American Wigeon, Ruddy Duck, Ring-necked Duck and a couple of the other regular species.
