I went on the far side of the Park and sat down near the edge of the river, I was hand-holding my Nikon D 800 with my 70-200 mm lens, plus a 1.7 converter, when I noticed coming from my right a pair of ducks flying in from my right. I was able to focus on them and obtained photographs of a pair of wood ducks in flight.

For all at times that I have been to Oliver Mill, I've never looked on the other side of the bridge over the Nemasket River. So today I decided to walk over and see what was there. There is a nice slow flowing river with marsh on both sides, and besides Canada Geese, there were a number of Wood Ducks swimming and then flying. I must keep an eye on this location in the future.
