The usual crowded breakfast table had only five members, but the food was great. A very cold, blustery wind must have been the reason for low participation and species count. The river was filled with only the expected ducks. We stopped at Riverview and had a few close Ring-necked Ducks and Buffleheads greet us. It was too hard to focus on the distant flocks, so we drove to the cove. They were closer, but now the wind was in our faces. A few Greater Scaup were mingled in with a big flock of a hundred or more Ring-necked Ducks.
