The shore near Douglas Beach in Allegan County held thousands of ducks, mostly Common Goldeneye. Try as we might, we couldn't pick a Barrow's. Adam spotted a snazzy male Harlequin Duck as a consolation. I digiscoped it from a great distance. Who knows when I'll see a Harlequin Duck next.

|Black-throated Blue Warbler|

|Redhead with Lesser Scaup and Bufflehead|
If you haven't had the chance yet, please consider pledging for the American Bird Conservancy's work with endangered Hawaiian birds. See this page. Its easy, and the ABC receives 100% of the donations.
Keep checking back, there are still plenty of birds to photograph.
