In Search of a Long-Tailed Duck at Lake Davis


I’ve been reading about the Long-Tailed Duck on Birdbrains, so Rich and I decided to drive over to Lake Davis to see if we could find it.  Lake Davis is a small lake in the middle of a downtown Orlando neighborhood.  It’s very close to Greenwood Cemetery, but I resisted the temptation to bore Rich with eagle-nest watching.  We did find lots of Ring-Necked Ducks at Lake Davis, but no Long-Tailed Duck.  Oh well.  I was happily surprised to see some Mute Swans there, and Rich found some turtles.  So he was happy that he tagged along.
