Photos of Our Local Rarities 3/22

I was out the door by 7 this morning; I wanted to get to the pond on Schoolhouse before the waterfowl flew off. Fortunately, they were all still there. There is no accounting for why this little pond would suddenly attract these birds, but they seem content enough, pulling up weeds from the bottom of the pond. My photos:
Tundra Swans, Redhead, Ring-necked Ducks, Canada Geese
You can see the diagnostic yellow dot on the upper bill near the eye. (click photo to enlarge)
Redhead drake with Ring-necks

You can really see the dot in this picture (click to enlarge).
