Drake and Hen Redhead ducks: I drove up to Taughannock Falls State Park on Cayuga lake this past Sunday. I had heard reports of a couple of Redhead ducks seen in a small section of open water. What I found at my arrival were two large rafts of Redhead ducks, 500-600 ducks. I did not have good sunlight but it was an overwhelming experience seeing so many ducks in one location. I watched as they dove, hunted, chased each other for food, preened and slept. Canon 7D using a 500mm IS II lens with 1.4x teleconverter (700mm) on a tripod.
