Quiet day for birds

A nice overcast, cool morning; a big, prehistoric Great Blue Heron flew ponderously overhead on my way in to work, and a small (non-Mallard) duck sped by shortly afterward.  I realized that I don’t know which ducks nest around here, so I have no idea whether this was some late migrant or one of our residents.  It looked too big to be a Teal, but that leaves a lot of ground.  It seems that the piddling little warbler migration has fizzled out; we didn’t even get our usual handful of loud Blackpolls this year.
