The snowy deep freeze has brought some unusual visitors to Lake New Mark.

Lakeside residents John Wang and Lauren Swan have spotted American black ducks, Buffleheads, Redheads and Ring-necked ducks. Sally Guardia, who also lives on the lake, was busy with her camera capturing these feathered friends.

In addition, Sally’s lens found our regular residents such as Canada geese, mallards, and cardinals roaming around an ice-glazed New Mark Commons!
