Photo by: Ron MacArthur A male northern shoveler duck takes refuge in Blockhouse Pond. Several pairs of the ducks arrived in Lewes recently during their annual southern migration. Delmarva is considered the fringe area where they would choose to winter.

Blockhouse Pond Park in Lewes is home to Canada geese and other members of the animal kingdom, if you look hard enough.
