Photographing Ducks in Maryland

An update from the East Coast:

After landing in JFK, Brian Zwiebel picked us up and we headed to our first destination, Cambridge, Maryland.  Photography was great with plenty of opportunities to photograph American Wigeon, Canvasback, Lesser Scaup, and Mallard.  The only difficulty was isolating a single bird for a photo!

The birding was fairly good as well with many species of ducks being further out including Long-tailed Ducks and Surf Scoters.  

A drake American Wigeon.  This was the best looking drake of the 25 or so American Wigeon present.

A drake Lesser Scaup.  The most numerous duck at the location.
