Even A Dirty Old Factory Pond Has Ducks

 This is the old Wilcox factory building which has been restored for use as offices I think. Back in the 60's and 70's they made ship anchors I believe and there was a giant hammer that came down in the factory that could be heard for miles away.I'm sure it must have been rough on the workers ears.
 There's a muddy old pond right in town near the old factory sight. Even though it doesn't look all that impressive, I still see some interesting birds here.
Just today some hooded Mergansers flew in (old photo). Those old factory ponds may not be the most scenic but the birds don't care about pretty as long as the pond meets there needs.
