Smew Fans “Flocking” To The Mother Lode

Soulsbyville, CA — Considering that over 2,000 readers “flocked” to our initial story on a male smew being spotted at the Willow Springs fishing pond, we surmise that many duck enthusiasts will be headed to that destination this weekend.

Wednesday 62 duck watchers-enthusiasts showed up at the pond to see a duck that had previously only been spotted three times in the United States.
