Waterbirds in Berkeley County

Dawn arrived today with cool and damp weather and overcast skies (but no rain) in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia, so I ventured out for a quick tour of ponds and other wetlands in the easternmost portions of Berkeley County. I found birds on 6 of 11 water bodies that I checked, with a final tally of 190 individuals of just 3 species:

Canada Goose 164
Mallard 7
Bufflehead 19 (1 adult male, the rest females or immature males)
