On Saturday, hubby and I decided to take a walk and check out the ducks at the Loch Raven Reservoir. Baltimore has three reservoirs that hold water for the city and Loch Raven is one of them. In the winter months the reservoir seems to attract many species of ducks, geese and gulls. During the season the Fishing Center rents boats and canoes and they have the only boat ramp for access to the lake. The lake is a preferred destination for bass fishing.
On the weekends a 3 mile section of the Loch Raven Drive is closed for bikers, roller bladers, joggers and walkers like hubby and I. The road follows the lake so it is very scenic.
We saw many families with little ones coming with bags of bread to feed the geese, ducks and the gulls. From the shoreline, I could id the Mallards, Hooded Mergansers, large group of Ring Necked Ducks and Common Mergansers.
Mute Swans, Canada Geese and Mallard ducks
Ring Necked Ducks have a white line around their beak and are easy to id.
Canada Geese walking near the frozen shoreline.
It was a great day to be out walking and enjoying the outdoors. The temps were in the low 50's which was nice after the cold weather we have been having on previous weekends.
