Ring-Necked Duck in July!?

The last couple of times that I’ve been to Lake Morton, I’ve noticed this lone Ring-Necked Duck out in the water. With all the ducks, swans, and geese at the “menagerie,” you might not think that was so strange…except for the fact that all his friends flew north several months ago! I wonder what made him decide to stay in Lakeland for the summer. Maybe he really likes 100-degree weather with a strong dash of humidity. Maybe he didn’t feel like flying so far. Maybe he wanted to see Father Goose in action. Whatever the reason, he stayed…and now it won’t be long before his duck friends return. :)
