A lot of species travel considerable distances. This winter Mallards and Mountain Lions have been in the spotlight. As temperatures warm up other critters will also be moving around to take advantage of wetland habitats.
That’s right, we’ve had a spoonbill sighting at Duck Creek. Now if you’re a duck hunter, you might wonder why I am making a big fuss about a Northern Shoveler. We get those all the time. If you’re a fisherman, you might think I’m referring to a paddlefish, which would be kind of cool to find at the end of your line in Pool 1, extremely unlikely, but cool if it happened. Well, I’m not referring to either one of these species.
