I saw some cool ducks at the park today. A pair of lifer Green-winged Teals. A pair of Northern Shovelers, a dozen Gadwall, and a dozen Mallards. Unfortunately I couldn't bring my camera because I'm not allowed to lift anything heavy for the next couple weeks.
@eric No herons?
It's true that we often see the best stuff when we don't have a camera. But we carry the images in our minds.
Personal instance for myself.
